Random Game: Girls' Camp Clipboard 2001

Every summer of my teenage years, I spent a week at LDS church girls' camp. Some people thrived on the girly kumbaya-ness of it all, but I was surrounded by girls (if you count sisters as girls) the rest of the year and merely had some fun during the week. The main things I remember from my first year was that I was embarrassed about my fluffy hair and I started my period while I was there. My memories got better as I got older, with the crowning glory of getting corn rows during my last year. An ultra-white 18 year old with corn rows looks absolutely... amazing.

For my last two years at camp, I became a YCL (youth camp leader) and got to pair up with some awesome girls to help the tinier campers have memorable experiences. Each YCL got "camp names," which are nicknames that are assigned by the adult leaders for the sake of fun. My mom was part of the committee and became obsessed with naming me "Whistlin' Dixie." I wish that I could explain the origin of that idea, but your guess is as good as mine. My friend Megan (who has a sweet foodie blog!) talked my mom off that ledge and compromised to "Dixie Cup."

I can't say that I love it.

Am I disposable? Flimsy? Good for rinsing toothpaste out of your mouth?

At any rate, I ran with it and decorated my YCL clipboard to high heaven. I thought it might be fun to do a Seek & Spot with all of the fantastic things that Teenager Holly thought were cool. Care to play?
