I just returned from a week at Girl's Camp! It's the best and I did NOT want to come home. The girls are amazing!!! We began the camp with an 8 mile hike. I gave the girls their lanyards and along the hike we stopped and talked about the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Lion. Click HERE for the PDF of these discussions. Click HERE to see the pins I made for the lanyards to go along with the characters in the Wizard of Oz.
I had painted 2 bricks yellow - get it? I had the girls take turns carrying these bricks in their backpacks. At the end of the hike we talked about burdens and how Jesus can lighten our burdens. It was pretty cool!
Our skit was a modern-day version of the Wizard of Oz. We had three girls on the Yellow Brick Road who were off to the Temple. They sang,
"We're off to see the temple,
the wonderful temple of God.
It really is a holy place where we can feel God's love.
If ever or ever a choice there was,
the temple of God is the choice because,
because, because, because, because, because.....
Because we are Children of God!"
It was really cute. Along the path they encountered girls who needed Knowledge, Courage, and a broken heart healed.
The tie-dye shirts were also a hit! They were great because I could spot the girls all over camp!!
So much fun! Now I have to finish unpacking and do LOTS of laundry!!!
