Girl's Camp

This week is a busy week and I will be a little out of touch because I will be in a place where you can get no cell phone service and that means no internet! I am spending the week with the young girls in our church at Girl's Camp!!  I have been trying to think of some things to do for a little gift for the girls each day. I have come across many inspirational sayings  and then I ran across  a picture that gave me some inspiration for one of the gifts for the day.

So, I wrote the messages on these stones. I am going to bring some Sharpie fine tip markers because we will be by a stream with some river rocks and then they can make some more of their own.

I also found some notebooks and found this quote and thought it would b e perfect to put on the front of the spiral notebooks that we could give to the girls on one of the days while we are there.

This is the picture that gave me the inspiration,  from  I love it!

I think I should make some for myself because they are so cute!

I also decided that we would probably need something to hang in the trees at our camp, so I made these pennant banners to brighten up our camp.

Of course they are in the Value colors! They were easy to make, I just cut them from fabric and sewed them to a long length of ribbon.

We also made some little treat bags with Laffy Taffy and Star bursts with the saying," A smile is a Laugh that Bursts!" It was one of the sayings on the rocks but doesn't it go well with the candy we chose! Sorry I don't have  a picture of the treat bags but we put them in little cellophane bags with ribbon and the saying attached.
We also bought some colored pencils and attached the saying,"Stay true to your Values".

I used my embroidery machine to write "Young Women" and if you look close you can also see the letters of our ward on some of the pennants. It was hard to get a picture because their is only one letter per pennant.

So, wish us luck with 21 girls this week at camp, it should be a blast!!!

Hi Donene!
Thanks for linking up your wonderful stone ideas at the Tuesday To Do Party last week! What a special keepsake for the girls take away from a special week.

Such wonderful words of inspiration, Donene! I'm going to have to write these down. You made preparation for a very special camp for these girls. I'm sure there were many blessings to be had by all. ;)
