REVIEW

This book is directed to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons or LDS) and refers to their church organizations. Despite that there is much here of value to anyone planning or preparing for girls camp. The author discusses the importance of starting the planning process early, especially in regards to reservations so that a location can be safely secured with plenty of time to spare.  Also, she beautifully sets forth an outline of all the topics that need to be covered and planned/prepared for in regards to food, shelter, safety, priesthood leaders, youth leaders, etc.  I appreciated her thoughts on the importance of choosing a camp theme that speaks to everyone involved and around which the activities can be based.

I remember my own girls camp experiences as times of fun but also spiritual growth and a chance to get better acquainted with the other girls as well as priesthood and Young Women leaders.  After reading this book I have a much greater appreciation for the tremendous amount of work that goes into making girls camp a success. I liked how Worlton carefully organized and presented her material in logical and practical steps, making what could be an easily overwhelming task into a set of much more manageable tasks.  I highly recommend this book for those who are looking at planning for or preparing a girls camp of any size.
