Young Women: Let's give them s'mores'

Definition: a s'more is a traditional nighttime campfire treat consisting of a roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker.

Recently, I met with a Young Woman camp leader from Chicago who wanted to share with me what they had done at camp this summer. She said, "There was a noticeable difference this year. It seemed as if the young women were more hungry than ever for spiritual food." Then she shared that the Spirit seemed to pour out on everyone. I know what she said is true because as I have visited camps and I too have felt that strong spirit. Then this Young Women leader described the detail that went into the planning and the many people who were called upon to help, including and especially the Laurels as Youth Camp Leaders. Then she shared with me some of her secrets, which I would like to pass on to you. She said, "I believe what made all the difference in camp is that our theme and everything we did focused on the Savior. It was all about Him."
