Girls Camp Redux--St. George

This will probably be Part 1 because I have a lot to say but it boils down to this: It was a ton of work but worth it in the end.

We met at the church early in the early in the morning. On our way to Zion we stopped by the St. George temple. It was a really great way to kick off our camp.

Girls and leaders waiting to load up vans.

Taya and Mary.

The girls who rode with me: Kaycee, Mary W., Adi, Mare, and Taya. Some of them were really, really chatty.

So beautiful.

We had a wonderful tour of the visitors center.

The cutest sister missionary from Ireland talked about the Savior. Then she took us to an exhibit of paintings depicting scenes from the pioneer movie "17 Miracles". It was extremely moving. The girls also saw a short film on the importance of families.

Holiness to the Lord, The House of the Lord. I heard several girls say this was the temple they wanted to be married in!

The 29 girls who came to camp in serious mode.

And in silly mode.

After the temple we at sack lunches at a nearby park. Then we were back on the road, on our way to camp!
