Joseph Smith gained a small following in the late s as he was dictating the Book of Mormon , which he said was a translation of words found on a set of golden plates that had been buried near his home in upstate New York by an indigenous American prophet. The church rapidly gained a following, who viewed Smith as their prophet. The main body of the church moved first to Kirtland, Ohio in the early s, then to Missouri in , where the Mormon War with other Missouri settlers ensued, culminating in adherents being expelled from the state under Missouri Executive Order 44 signed by the governor of Missouri. After Smith's death, a succession crisis ensued, and the majority voted to accept the Quorum of the Twelve , led by Brigham Young, as the church's leading body. After continued difficulties and persecution in Illinois, Young left Nauvoo in and led his followers, the Mormon pioneers , to the Great Salt Lake Valley.

We hope all Young Women in our Stake will make every effort to come and join us!! Please review all of the information below. If you have questions, please contact your Ward Camp Coordinator. We will be adding new information frequently as we get closer to camp.
