Book Review: Everything You Need to Know about Girls Camp by Stephanie Worlton

Dear Fellow Page Turners,

Today I'm pleased to be part of Stephanie Worlton's blog tour for Everything You Need to Know about Girls Camp.

I read, reviewed, and loved her novel Hope's Journey so when she asked me to review this one, I jumped at the chance. That review can be found her. Hope's Journey was fiction; this one was non-fiction and I was curious to see how she'd do in this new genre. She hit it out of the park, but let's get to that in a little bit.

But before we get into what I think ab out this book, I'd like to give you some information about the author and the book. Then I'll get to my review and tell you how you can win two great prizes.

Stephanie Connelley Worlton lives in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains where she enjoys frequent opportunities to observe nature and appreciate God’s magnificent creations. She is a seasoned Camp Director, an avid Scouter, and a devoted youth leader. Aside from the busy schedule she keeps as a wife and mother of four, Stephanie enjoys organizing, interior design, gardening, carpentry, painting, and being involved with the youth of our rising generation.  To learn more about Stephanie or her book, visit her “Kreating Krazy” blog:  www.stephanieworlton.blogspot.com

Here is a short synopsis/purpose of the book.

Few callings strike fear into a woman’s heart like that of being a Girls Camp leader. Whether you’re a new camper or a seasoned leader, Stephanie Worlton is here to help.

Make your Girls Camp an experience to remember with Everything You Need to Know about Girls Camp. Filled with helpful tips on everything from holding your first meeting to dealing with unhappy campers, this essential guide takes the stress out of planning to make your camp a success!

You can buy this book on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or through Deseret Book. You can follow the tour to read more reviews and learn more about this great book here. 

And now for my review:

I already mentioned how much I loved Stephanie's writing style and so I decided to give this a book shot. I was surprised by how much I actually liked this novel. Girls Camp is a place where a group of girls are gathered together and camp out in nature by a week. Naturally getting the call to set up the camp and lead the girls safely is quite the task.

However, Stephanie offered excellent advice at how to survive at this very feat and she did so in a way that will keep the readers engaged. She offered readers practical advice and advice that will definitely make Girls Camp a better experience for all involved.

I think that any girls camp leader would benefit from listening to Stephanie's advice. It wasn't too long ago that I was at girl's camp myself and all of these recommendations sound incredible to me.

Yes, the target audience for this book is for those who are planning Girl's Camp, but this book would be useful to anybody planning to take a bunch of girls camping.

If you would like to win a "Camp Leader Survival Kit" or a signed copy of the book, then follow this link to win cool prizes.

Thanks for stopping by!
