Product Description

The power of girls’ camp is young women joining capable, positive leaders who are organized and who make things happen. Divine nature is strengthened by being in nature. But how do you translate "Mormonspeak" for nonmember friends at girls’ camp? How do you hold to modesty standards while making every girl feel accepted? What about campers with special needs or diet restrictions? How do you break up cliques at camp?

A spectrum of women and men from across the country have come together in this volume to talk about real-world situations faced at girls’ camp. You’ll find practical ideas and powerful stories, from the first day of camp, to lifetime lessons that continue to bless lives long after camp is over. Whether you’re a leader, lifeguard, nurse, craft-barn leader, or priesthood visitor, whether your camp is primitive or modern, there’s something in these pages for you.

Great Book for Anyone Going to Girls Camp
By , Submitted on 2017-02-26

This is a great book for anyone going to camp! The book is well put together with lots of different ideas regarding girls camp. There are 9 chapters in the book, and each chapter has 3-5 different peoples perspective on what the subject of the chapter is about. The book has so many great ideas, it even has recipes for delicious food that you might be able to make up a camp. I went through it and marked all the ideas that I liked. I love that the book is a compilation of a lot of different opinions about how to make girls the most special and sacred experience for the young women of today!
