YW Camp Book

Girls, I saw this YW Camp Book from here and loved it!
What a wonderful keepsake for the girls to have from camp.  Something they could place into their hope chest, and pull it out later in life when their own daughters are preparing for their first week of camp.  A future memory share, bonding moment!  :)
She said it took quite a bit of time to put them together, but said it was well worth it.  That's why I decided to share this with you now.  ;)

They purchased old books from a local library for $1.00 each.  She mentioned that they were able to purchase a set of encyclopedias and a few dictionaries that were the same size.  (perfect for pressing leaves and flowers, don't you think?)  They spray painted the covers gold.  (you could even wrap them in fabric or sturdy paper)
This is what filled the pages:  (go here for a few photographs of the pages)
  • pockets for secret sister letters
  • pockets for their letters from home
  • a pocket for a strength of Youth pamphlet
  • Table of Contents, for the subjects of each devotional
  • blank pages in each section to write thoughts or memories
  • a keepsake pocket for leaves, flowers, little treasures they found in the mountains
  • blank pages for others to write on - similar to a yearbook signing
  • pages in the back, for photographs taken at camp
