Becoming One Girls Camp Theme with Faith Walk

Girls Camp was amazing this year!!! Our stake theme was "Becoming One" and each ward was to choose a 'becoming' theme. We chose "Becoming His" and our symbol was a garden. One leader made darling journals for each girl with quotes, pictures, scriptures, and thoughts for each day of camp as each day had it's own flower, garden, and purpose. The daily tivodevo (devotional- stop what you are doing- like tivo) followed the daily theme. For example, Tuesday's flower was a daisy and the theme was purity.

Personal Progress Value Experiences for Camp

You can use Girls' Camp to pass off several Personal Progress Experiences very easily!

The following Personal Progress experiences are taken from the document Incorporating Personal Progress Experiences into Mutual and Camp.

The following are especially good for Girls' Camp activities:

Faith 5

Increase your understanding of the Atonement of Jesus Christ by reading Isaiah 53:3–12; John 3:16–17; Romans 5; 2 Nephi 9:6–7, 21–26; Alma 7:11–13; 34:8–17; and Doctrine and Covenants 19:15–20. In your journal write your feelings about the Savior and what He has done for you. Share your feelings in a testimony meeting.

Individual Worth 5

Girls Camp Treats

Our yw have girls camp this week and I wasn't able to go :( , but I wanted to let the girls know I was thinking about them.

My husband is going up for Bishopric night tonight, so I made some treats for the young women. Last year I made cookies, but this year we have one girl with a serious gluten allergy. So, while I could have made two separate kinds of cookies, I thought I'd keep it simple this year. I bought a variety of Skittles (which are gluten-free) -one for each girl...

Service Project Idea for Girls Camp

I am the camp director from our ward. We are doing our girls camp with the stake this year. I am in charge of the service project idea. We are doing camp at the Heber Valley Girls camp. Any ideas on what we can do, that would take about 1-2 hours. There will be about 120 girls. Thank you! This is such a great website!

Arise and Shine Forth Personal Progress Magnets

This magnet idea was submitted several months ago, but it got lost in my inbox somehow....

It was submitted by Janine B who says, "I thought it would be a good idea to have the girls pick their value projects and write them somewhere where their parents would see them too. I printed these fridge magnets thinking that if their goals were on their refrigerators they would also be on their minds. So we printed these out on cardstock and put magnets on the back and passed them out at New Beginnings this year."

Thanks for the great idea, Janine!

Girls Camp Certification Record

YW Girls Camp Certification Record on 1 sheet: Copy these pages front and back onto card stock for each girl. These are kept in the Camp Director's folder and follow the girls until they graduate. I made this to keep a record of each girls progress / completion ... so if their camp book ever gets lost we have proof of which levels she had completed. Also, it is easier to see which items are still needing to passed off for each girl. Each requirement fulfilled is initialed or highlighted as complete. Hope this helps!

Hi Jenny: I have used your site so many times in my calling and thought that this jpg I created might be of some use to others. It is:

The YW torch in outline with areas to fill in to recognize anything you are trying to encourage the YW to achieve (Personal Progress, bringing their scriptures to class, participating in opening exercises etc.) I am using it at YW camp to encourage each cabin group to do all the things that make camp run smoothly.

The Lord's people are a covenant people under solemn obligation to him so to live as he has declared to the Prophet Joseph to become a standard to all the nations, and if there was ever a time in the history of the world when it needed a people that would manifest in its lives all the principles of the gospel, that time is today. - Joseph L Wirthlin, 1946 General Conf.

Go to http://www.google.com/

Go to http://www.google.com/ and type identifying poisonous plants. You'll find lots of information that is useful, including pictures.

You could also call the local county extension office. It's very likely they have already created information relating to this topic for your area. You can also contact the Scoutmaster of local Boy Scout troop to see if he knows other resources.
