The first day (July 26), getting to camp was a fun start. We picked out our tents, explored the area and had opening ceremonies. The camp had a cafeteria so every meal was a feast! This first day we were able to take it easy. We had no idea how much work the rest of the week would be.
The second day (July 27) we focused on the rock wall. This was hard for a lot of girls and brought them a lot of tears when they often couldn't make it all the way up, but in the end every girl in our ward had tried their hardest. They were all awesome and I was proud of them for doing such a hard thing. The rest of the day was camp certification (to show they could swim, etc) along with crafts. That night we could see the Milky Way so clearly that we had to wake all the girls to see it. Such a beautiful place!
The third day (July 28) was the group activities. This was all about the girls working together and relying on each other to do hard things. It was a bonding experience for all the girls. It also helped get them out of their comfort zones. The older girls including me were able to do the zip line. I was terrified but faced my fears and was so happy I did!
That evening we performed the skit that our girls had been working on for weeks, followed by a beautiful testimony meeting.
The morning (July 29) that we went home was sad, but even though they would miss their new friends the girls were anxious to sleep in their own beds and take showers.
