ZION JUNIOR GUARD AND GUARDETTE HOME AFTER CAMP TRIP Ideal camping weather pre vailed during the boys’ and the girls’ camping periods. Every boy and girl was actively par ticipating in the day’s activities from 7:50 a.m. reveille to 10:30 p. m. when taps sounded. The activities were swim ming, hiking, boating, fishing, 3 daily meals, devotional activi ties, handicraft classes, tent, worship and discussions, camp fires. * Special ‘boat trips to Cham ber Island, and around Gills Rock; bus trips to State Park, hiking and climbing of bluffs and caves added much to our camping thrills. The devotional and worship periods were under the direc tion of Elder Percy Rusch. The Camp Fire program and even ing worship was in charge of David Offner. Special activi ties were supervised by Paul Peters, who handled the camp j bank and store buying during boys’ week. Mrs. Clara (Ma) Baurle cap ably managed the kitchen, menu and table care and was assisted by Mrs. Scaccia and Mrs. Rusch. During girl week Jean Stor ey supervised the swimming periods and assignment of camp duties. I lone Koppen was in charge of the Camp Bank and Store. I Mary Neketuk handled the crafts classes. The Camp staff is grateful for the opportunity of working with the young folks. They are thankful to God for the testi monies of many of the campets and pray that they will carry on during the coming year. They have added to the camp equipment three new row boats, 2 new tents, a pump, jack, and water tank supplying running water to the kitchen and washstands and a new tar paulin for the crafts area.
