GMA Pin Trading: We will again have a time to trade pins or buttons at retreat on Tuesday afternoon during recreation. Bring pins or buttons from your state. You might also want to bring a towel, scarf, lanyard or notebook for displaying your pins!
Afterglow: will be held again this year on Wednesday night after services; this is always a fun time. Any girls who want to present a special song or talent at camp should send an email including a description of your planned performance (title, explanation, and script and/or video) to AnnaBeth Townsend, National GMA Song Leader (email@example.com). The National Officers are asking everyone to wear a white or neon colored shirt to AfterGlow because there will actually be black lights, glow sticks, etc. Glow sticks and bracelets will be available for purchase at the project promotion tables near the silent auction area.
