Girls Camp 2015

Just got back from girls camp a few weeks ago, and I was really pleased with how well the theme came out. We completed the first aid and hikes before hand, and then the rest of the certifications at camp. I completed the first aid, just like the amazing race challenges and then also had 1 challenge each day at camp that included 6 or 7 tasks. Girls were judged on a point system, and the team with the most points won  that challenge.

I designed the t-shirts, way cute!

These are the amazing race challenges, I had three teams, divided by color.

These are the journals that we created for each girl. They loved them.

These are the camp survival kits, passports and mini schedules that each girl received.

This is what was in the camp survival kit. Poweraid bottle, in their specific teams color that could be reused over and over again at camp. I had a sign on the refilling station "Fuel station". This also had a bandanna in their teams color, a small first aid kit, a whistle, ear plugs, a few snacks and a pill bottle filled with skittles that talked about taking 2 pills for strength.

These are the passports that I created. I ordered the passports through Oriental Trading Company and then carefully removed all the pages. I created a template and then printed the front page with each girls name, picture and birthday. I also had the other pages printed with each years specific certifications. As each girl passed off their certifications, they received a sticker of completion that was similar to a stamp you would receive if you visited a foreign country (these came with the passports from Oriental Trading).

These are the pillow treats and other items that we handed out. I had different devotionals that tied each one to that day.

 We had a great time. If you have any questions you may leave a message...... I am not sure how to give out the templates, so if you message me, I will try to get them to you.

Thanks for reading!

Devin's Raingutter Ragada

Written by Devin Jones:

I think that the Raingutter Ragada was really fun and I liked how each person got to make their own boat. Each boat had their own style. It was really a matter of how hard you blew and the wind. I went up against a guy named Kimball.  He was good, but I won by an inch or two.  There was no awards for the winners, just cookies to eat.
