Girls Camp 2014: Mission Me Highlights

I had the opportunity to go to our Church's Girls Camp this past week. I went to take photos and help where needed. It was fun. And a little cooler than when I have gone before, thank goodness.
Our girls start girls camp at age 12. When they are 16 and 17 they become youth camp leaders. They get to plan and run camp, with some adult supervision. The Stake staff and the YCL's all came up a day early to get set up. Mean while the 4th year girls get to go on an adventure trip for a few days before joining us.
Here are sampling of photos. Believe me, I took a lot more than this.
Jordan, one of the YCL's.

 Lucia, one half of the fabulous kitchen duo.
The theme for the week.
