Right when we got to camp, the kids found their cabins and we met up for these Book of Mormon rotations. Each prophet had 45 minutes to tell their story and do an activity. For some it was a little too long and others, it was perfect timing for them..
|This was Lehi. He dwelt in a tent-hence the tent in the background. After telling his story, he talked specifically about the Iron Rod.|
|The kids held on to the iron rod as long as they could-hanging from a tree. Then he gave them a harness and had them hang from the iron rod. He talked about how much easier it is to hold to the rod with help.|
This was one was a highlight. The kids loved and it really engaged them.
|Before each meal, the Stake 1st counselor asked a youth to share what they had learned so far.|
|We made sure to get group shots of each group. Some stakes that have done this, had the youth dress up as well. Our stake leaders didn't think they would do it, so they decided to not do it. It would have looked really neat though.|
|Of course, the end of the night ended with a dance in the parking lot. It worked out great and the kids were really into it.|
|This isn't the best picture, but they got a throne and some dress up clothes for that era for the kids to take pictures at and they loved it.|
|After the dance and some brownies, we headed to the amphitheater where a member of the stake presidency did some star gazing with them and talked to them about some Heroes. It was a beautiful night.|
