4th year hike

In our Stake we have what is called a 4th Year Hike.
It is for the girls that are about 15 and have attended camp for 4 years.
They could complete their hiking certification at camp,
however, the Stake Presidency and the Stake Young Women's leaders have felt that the girls needed more.
So our Stake does a 4th year hike.
The purpose is to allow the girls that have attended camp for 4 years, the chance to go on a campout and a hike that is specific just for them.  
They can get to know each other better,
they can get to know their Stake leaders better,
they can do hard (and I mean HARD) things
and they can prepare for future leadership.
All 3 of the leaders were from our ward.
And 3 of the 6 girls were from our ward.
We are one tough ward!!
(2 girls and 1 leader did not make it to the top)
Our first night in camp we were really roughing it--we ordered pizza!

Wow good job! We were suppose to hike up Hobble Creek Canyon for my 4th year hike, but there was a bear sighting. That meant that we camped up the canyon & no hiking was involved. Darn!
