This year for Stake Girl's Camp the Young Women of our stake decided they wanted to do a Super Hero theme, but we didn't want to go with the usual super heroes, we wanted the girls to be the heroes. Our theme was "Ignite your power within" we wanted to focus on the girls spiritual and physical talents to help them see that it is ok to be themselves! We also wanted to focus on how the girls can use Heavenly Father's powers (scriptures, prayer, atonement etc..) to strengthen their own. Our scripture was Moroni 10: 7-8, we also had themes for each day of camp which were: Look Upward (Look to Heavenly Father for guidance) Reach Outward (use your talents to help others) Press Forward (The Savior can help you keep moving forward), like how superman has his "up, up and away" ours was "Look upward, Reach outward, Press forward!" We have 8 wards in our stake so thought it would be perfect to assign each of the wards a Young Woman's Value that they could concentrate on in their own camp. We asked a talented woman, Jenny Smith, in our stake if she would create a value shield for each of them, this is what she came up with: (she has given permission to share these)
Aren't they amazing!! These were the basis for all our decorations! Click on each value for the artwork:
Hope this helps you in your planning! You could also use it for New Beginnings or Young Women in Excellence. I have been so grateful for others who have been willing to share their work in the past I thought it would be nice to pay it forward. I'll be showing how we used these for decorations and other camp ideas in following posts. Look for our "Sky High" activity, Bishop's Assemble, Camp Kickoff, Crafts and Music/Skits as well as other Camp planning helps in the next posts.
