Where do I begin with camp besides saying it was an absolutely amazing experience? I went to camp this year as the ward camp director, hike leader and lifeguard. I was also a "cabin mom" and got to chill with the 4th year girls. I was busy, it was exhausting, but totally worth it!
Where we had our nightly firesides.
My view when I first got to camp. Utterly relaxing.
I was in my cabin setting up my bunk and helping the girls decorate when one of the girls slammed the door shut. A few minutes later, the rest of us tried to leave the cabin...but couldn't. I pulled and pushed, tugged and pounded — but the door wouldn't open. I called and texted a hand full of people and someone finally came to rescue to us. Turns out the outside latch had fallen and we were locked in. At least it was fun for a few minutes!

The camp was held at beautiful Beavers Bend, and we were witness to a lot of wildlife.
We weren't sure if this deer was real or not at first.
Though the temperatures were hot, the views on our hikes were stunning and refreshing — and so green!
When we got to the top of our hike we stopped and read the creation story from Genesis. Like always, I was impressed with the girl's insights.

And some of the girls and leaders from my ward...
Another successful year at camp done!
