We went to a campsite called Camp Liahona about an hour and a half north of the city. It was a beautiful site! The girls loved being surrounded by so many trees and having so much grass. #citygirlproblems :)

Definitely NO room for all the camping crap.

Look how green and beautiful it is in NY!

One of the YW, Kyla, made this video while at camp. She has little bits of several activities, including playing games, writing rap songs about nature, swimming in the lake, and starting the bonfire. It shows several of the girls from our ward having a great time. She did a great job putting the clips together -- seems like a Personal Progress project to me ;)
Half way through camp, Angela, Lejdja, and I ran to the nearby store for some more fruit and charcoal (since the unexpected rain drenched everything). We had a fun break from the girls :)

Despite all the craziness, the only thing I really complained about was the mosquitos. Didn't notice I'd been attacked until days later. Stupid beautiful lake...
Here are some more pictures from Lejdja from the weekend:

I think most of the girls are looking forward to next year, so that's a good sign! :)
