Girls Camp Recap

Last year, my mom was Stake Girls Camp Director. (Meaning, she’s in charge of 200+ girls camping for a week!) Her one year assignment turned into two, so she’s off camping again this week! I thought I’d do a little recap of last year’s girls camp, a year later. Yeah, yeah, I’m super behind. What else is new? 😉 I was hired for all her design needs (and by hired I mean, she birthed me so I owe her 😉


The theme for camp was “Shine and Light the Way,” so of course we incorporated lots of sunshine and happy colors. Pictured above are the posters and reminder cards. (She had a coupon for 200+ free business cards from a shop in St. George, so she printed out a bunch to hand out to the girls and leaders)

For all the leaders, I designed these binder covers and invitations. I got the easy, fun job. My mom got to put together the packet, program, and all the information. I lucked out 😉


The t-shirts were one of my favorite parts! They’re happy and bright (and I won’t tell you how many times a week I wear mine!) P.S. Sorry mom, I stole all your camp photos. I was huge and pregnant last summer, so unfortunately I wasn’t able to go camping.

My mom came up with these darling bottle cap necklaces. She ordered all the supplies off Etsy (I’m not sure which shop specifically) Pretty sure she’ll tell you they took awhile to put together, but they turned out super cute!


These subway prints were put into spray painted frames (possibly from the dollar store? I don’t remember now) and then set on each ward’s table.


And possibly my favorite things to design, a whole bunch of quotes! These were hung up all over camp and on the bathroom mirrors and stalls. All the quotes my mom picked out went along with the theme.


I know I’m forgetting a whole bunch of the other stuff they did, but seriously, how cute did it turn out? My mom is AMAZING! (and so was her assistant Nicole!!!)


You can catch a little sneak peak of this years Girls Camp over here. 😉
