American Girl Camp-Lea & Samantha!

Wow, I cannot believe how much we have done so far this week in our camp. Crafts, games, and of course dancing. Tuesday was “Lea” day. We learned that Lea traveled to Brazil and helps animals. During dance we learned the “cha-cha” and danced to Rio with ribbons. The dancers really got into this and […]

Princess Camp June 2016 – Day 2 & 3
