Oh wait, you have no idea what I am talking about...let's take it back a couple of steps.
I am currently the first counselor in my ward's Young Women's program...meaning, I am over the girls ages 14-15 (but my ward is pretty small, so we keep all the girls together for lessons and mutual).
Recently, I was asked to be our Girls Camp director...meaning, I get to organize and plan girls camp for my ward! I am actually pretty excited about this. It has been so long since I have been camping, and I really do like to camp (although some may argue this fact). Plus, I love the girls in my ward and am excited to be part of girls camp with them. I am a little nervous about being able to pull it off successfully, though.
Our stake camp theme is "Answer the Call" and each ward has received a "mission call" to a selected country. My ward has been "called" to Russia, so we get to learn all about Russia and do our best to represent our country at camp this summer. We even get to learn a Russian dance (hopefully not the one where you have to squat real low and kick your legs out!) and learn how to sing "I Am A Child Of God" in Russian!
Now here's the thing...I don't really know a whole lot about Russia. When I think Russia, I think of the Disney movie Anastasia and the Romonov's. If you have any fantastic ideas about a camp cheer, skit, or even fun activities or decorations the girls can make, let me know! Any ideas or suggestions you have for me to make my directorial debut a success would be much appreciated!
