YW Beach Schedule

Yesterday our YW group had the privilege of a day beach retreat. We had a blast. I'm going to share the schedule we *tried* to follow. (Don't you just love when you find a great idea that gets you motivated? Well I do!) I think we planned way too much and just didn't have enough time. Here we go....I have to add my comments here and there and we have to have some pictures!!!

(We read 3rd Nephi and the names are names of leaders in charge of different chapters and activites...Thanks Lyndy!)

CHAPTER 1 – 3: Read by Kariann

ACTIVITY: Don’t flip flop in the gospel (Kariann). Decorate Flip flops. We used water balloons. Cheap and work well!

CHAPTER 4: Read by YW. (farther people stray from God, the less modest and bizarre their appearance becomes.)

ACTIVITY: Divide girls in half (Nephites vs. Gadianton robbers). Play tug of war (Melinda) I tried to rig it so the Nephites would win but the Gadianton robbers had some good tricks up their sleeves!

CHAPTER 5: Read by YW.

ACTIVITY: Give Mormon a shout out for his hard work. Have girls write “And behold, I do make the record on plates which I have made with mine own hands.” Won’t come close to what Mormon had to do but maybe they will appreciate him a little more

CHAPTER 6 -7: Play CD and eat LUNCH

FREE TIME: 15-20 mins.

ACTIVITY: Girls put on bandannas and lead them back to reading area (Victoria)
