“What we hope will be one of the major changes with using the Young Women Camp Guide is the involvement of the youth camp leaders," Sister Bonnie L. Oscarson, Young Women general president, told the Church News.
Changes to the Church's Young Women camp program, included in a new camp guide to be released this spring, include eliminating certification and emphasizing youth leaders.
Meant to be “globally applicable” for young women living in all different areas of the world, the new Young Women Camp Guide will soon be available as a resource for Young Women presidencies, camp specialists, and youth camp leaders.
Young Women general board members from around the world provided input for the new guide. It replaces the former camp manual which has been "a valued and treasured resource" for many years, but is not as applicable to today’s worldwide Church, said members of the Young Women general presidency.
