Girls Camp


I have had some anxiety about girls camp coming up. Feeling a bit overwhelmed and a total newcomer to YEARS of traditions. I went up to the camp yesterday to check it out and it is amazing.
it totally reminds me of the movie The Parent Trap. These are the cabins which are a historical landmark and built in the 1930's.
it is filled with character - this is the main lodge.

even the little red boxes holding fire hoses are darling.equipped with real toilets, showers and a swimming pool - it is amazing
it is a few miles from Camp David and is absolutely beautiful. But the best part was the gargle sale that someone was having in the nearby town.
This was just one of the tables of milk glass!

My eyes bugged at the sight of that table. My grandma had lots of green milk glass and I'm loving it right now. Not that I have any need or use for that sort of stuff, but I kind of want some. You stumble upon the coolest stuff!

Natasha said...

I hope you snatched up as much of that milk glass as possible. My grandmother gave mne one piece - a napkin holder - and I treasure it!

My, oh my!!! What a camp. All of the years that I went to Girls' Camp (as a youth and as a leader) we never had a place like that. I do hope that it is a good experience for you. That milk glass is beautiful!! Did you buy any? Love to you, SEC

WHat an amazing place to have girl's camp! Dang, we had to pitch tents, use port-a-potties, and wash in a river.

What an amazing collection of glass!Beautiful!

Woah! Gorgeous glass!
The camp looks so stinking cute. I'm hoping that your stake lets the girls sleep inside their cabins, unlike ours whose "tradition" it is to sleep next to the cabin under the stars. Seems a little silly to me, but maybe there's a good reason for that. And please tell me that the pool is going to be filled up right?? How awesome. love you kristi!

Oh -- all that milk glass. What a fun find. I would love to have everyone of those pieces. There is just something about that white. Amazing
Cute dresses on your girls. Did you find them at Costco along with the lilly pulitzer? I did.

I wish our Girls Camp location was as cute as this - love, love, love the cabins!

So, did you bring home any milk glass?

I love the girls camp pics. Sleeping inside a historical building, cool!
I too love your site! Thank you for putting in all the time to do it. {Thank your family for me also!}
I wonder how many women are putting food coloring in their toilets, collecting ribbon and making dollar books because of you. I know I am!

Oh I love that milk glass collection. How did you walk away from it all?

Before you even said Parent Trap, that's what I thought of when I saw that cabin. Very cool place for girl's camp. You are going to rock that camp this year!!

Holly said...

Now I'm singing "Let's Get Together, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah." That camp looks fantastic!

Love, love, love the milk glass. How did you resist?!?

Leigh said...

I don't know that I've ever commented on your blog before, but I just had to pipe in tonight to say...Are you kidding me with all that milk glass?!?!!! I can see at least six pieces I would have snatched up right away. Wow. I'm convinced you lead some kind of charmed life.

we camped in tents in the grossest, dustiest place ever. it looks like its going to be an amazing experience. I can't wait to hear all about it!
That area around Camp David is so beautiful. That garage sale looks amazing. Did you get anything?

Hannah said...

Those are the cutest cabins! This is going to be so fun for you. I loved- LOVED camp growing up. My mom was our camp director and they begged her to do it after all of us were out of the program and she needed to be released so she could rest and revive after 7 years. You seem like the perfect person for the job Kristi- it will be cool to see you add your creative twist. And that garage sale- did you get anything???

I wish our girl's camp looked more this. Our girls are staying in tents but they do have "flushies". I was asked to go and help out with medical issues but had to say no......being Primary President is enough for me. I can't believe I said no to something....a miracle!!!

Oh, my. I wouldn't have been able to resist all of that milk glass. I am have been collecting milk glass lamps for my girls' bedrooms for a couple of years now and putting fun shades on them. I think the combination of milkglass and hobnail chenille is just too yummy!

That camp looks seriously dreamy. It's more like girl's vacation or resort week than girl's camp eh?
