Our ward YW leaders planned a great New Beginnings program this year. It was casual dress and we were asked to bring camping chairs. When we got there, there was a fake fire going in the middle of the room. The girls all sat on the floor and the parents sat in their camp chairs.
They handed out the camp songbook our stake made, and we sang the opening hymn from it. After the opening song, prayer, and announcement of the program, a couple seasoned girls campers led a couple of the fun camp songs. We sang a camp song or two between each segment of the program.
To encourage excitement about camp, they had girls talk about camp and adventure camp after the talks on personal progress and the YW program. I don't remember ever being at New Beginnings where camp was presented like this! The whole program was fun and very memorable. It was also a great way to get the new girls excited about YW, and the older girls were a great example of how fun YW can be! (The cake pictured was NOT what our refreshments were, I just found it and thought it was adorable!)
