girls camp 2009



































these girls are so amazing. I wish all of you could have been there for testimony meeting the last day. I had tears in my eyes the whole time. I just want so badly for all of them to know the power they hold. their potential is endless. their ability to influence the life's of others, immense. I hope they left camp feeling a little more of their divinity. I just love them all so much.

Hi Rachel I follow your blog because I love your photography. I had to pop in. I am 99% certain this is the same camp of my youth. I spent many summers here you captured this place so well.

Girls Camp. What a great time. I love the whole garden, 'planting virtue' theme. And of course the photos are fantastic. Looks like a very fun time.

RACHEL!! Long time...I'm just catching up here. Did you DARE mock my camp experience when...what is that I see...BUNK BEDS?? Inside?? And eating...INSIDE? Oh dear Rachel, you didn't rough it at all. Looks like so much fun...and CLEAN. Camp Cushy is more like it. :) The girls are lucky to have you. And...I loved camp as well. But I was much more slanted and dirty than you were. :)

dear anonymous,

I have no idea who you are! nor do I remember mocking anyone's camp experience....my apologies if I did. and just to set the record strait I did NOT pick the campsite. I was busy getting married. I would always rather tent camp and cook over a fire (which I did 3 other times this summer). to be totally honest those cabins and mess hall grossed me out more than going a'naturale. years of smells and oh, the flys!!! I had to respond because NO ONE is allowed to call me a cushy camper! NO ONE!
