girls camp awards: three ways


Girls Camp puts an emphasis on our Heavenly Parents' creations. 🌿 It allows girls to make new friends and shine. How do we celebrate that? ⭐ I've made some awards. 

I’m a creator. 👩🏻‍🎨 I’m a YCL, with years of girls camp experience and a new responsibility to help younger friends create theirs. I wasn’t satisfied with the camp awards on Pinterest because they seemed more about the pretty packaging, treat tie-ins and puns than meaningful awards + gospel tie-ins themselves. I saw a problem and did what I always do: design! ✍

These awards go deeper than surface-level--but the surface is cute as well! ✨It’s also customizable. Whether you want to prefill dates, tweak the certification wording or add signatures to the prints, the editable PDF can meet the needs of your girls! ✏

As a young woman, I would love to get these pretty certificates! 💁🏻‍♀️ If you’d like to put a creative twist on these classics, here are some ways that I thought of to mix up the awards. 😉


Handwriting & autographs are so personal! 💛 Let your campers keep them in their memories with this simple twist: graph construction paper, and make a border for the award. Make another border with white paper where signatures will go. Make a final border to finish it out. SO CUTE & OFFICIAL LOOKING!!!!


Pictures > words imho! 📷 Put together pictures taken throughout the week of camp, post it notes w specific examples of how they showed an award in action, and the award itself into a collage. To keep it firm, if you can afford, put it in a dollar store picture frame.


It has always meant so much to me when my YCLs have taken the time to write personal notes to me at the end of camp and I will definitely want to do the same for my campers. ❤ A note from the group is always great, but nothing can beat personal one-by-one ministering. 🥰 With this approach you get both sides!

Give everyone index cards about the same size as the awards. Let them write their own individual notes to the camper receiving the award. If you want you can stop here, but I was feeling crafty and took the next step by attaching the notes to an accordion book with the award as the cover and a picture of the group as the end. (stock photos obvi to protect ppls privacy. yay!)

Now that you've gotten the deets and a preview of the cuteness of the awards, you've got a choice to make! 👇 Will you say...
