Young Men/Young Women Activity

Our ward does not have a scouting program so the McVey's and ourselves were asked to teach them how to build a fire. We decided to also teach them to cook silver turtles (tin foil dinners) which included meat, potatoes, onions, carrots and especially for them pumpkin and squash.  They had never eaten them before but really enjoyed them.  They met at the church before going to the beach to make their own dinners.  All the meat and vegetables were precut and ready to assemble.

Two teams competed against each other to see which team could build a fire and burn the string first.  This team won for the girl's team.

We didn't realize that it was high tide so they had to move inland to build the fires.

Sister Humphries is the Young Women's President and she is in the middle in the yellow jacket.

Afterwards Elder McVey did an object lesson which two dollar bills and that the value is the same even is one is new and the other one is crumpled and dirty.  All the youth and the leaders seemed to enjoy the activity.
