We camped in Shell canyon at a private ranch. It's owned by the Cody Stake Young Men's President and he generously let us camp there free of charge. It's beautiful and has a resident moose and her calf that wander around. We had about 70 young women from the 7 wards attend. The weather was really nice, not too hot. Our last night it really rained and hailed, so the hike that was planned for Thursday morning had to be cancelled because the mud was just too thick.

Our theme was Doctrine and Covenants 6:36, "Look unto the Lord in every thought with all your heart". We combined that with the Wizard of Oz and Glinda the good witch's statement, "you've always had the power within you." Our YCL's were the Dorothy's of camp and the leaders were the Glinda's. The stake leaders had to do a skit and I was elected to be Toto!

It was a successful camp and I'm glad I got to go and participate.
On another note, Palmer left the MTC on Tuesday, so we won't hear from him until Monday because the P-Days in the mission field are Monday and not Thursday like they were in the MTC.
