This is what we look like roughing it in the woods for one week at Girls Camp. It is no secret that I don't enjoy not washing my hair for three days straight, sleeping with bugs on my freezing cold cot, or having to use a port-a-potty. Tent life is a rough life. But all those things were a small price to pay for the unforgettable memories we made and adventures we had this year.
we put our lives at risk in the near death experience of rappelling
(if you look really close you can see the port-a-potties in the background of this picture)
It was little Gabrielle's first year at Girls Camp (obviously we had to take a polaroid together document)
matching friendship bracelet making is a must at camp. Tassels are a very nice touch
the ultimate adventure: zip lining. At night. In the dark. I'm so glad that I was able to convince our leaders to let all the Youth Camp Leaders do it. It was probably one of the best memories of camp this year (and a nice reward for working & catching the younger girls on the zip line for 4 hours every single day)
my one girls camp survival tip:
You just have to bring clothes you don't care about and hope for the best…
