|American Girl® Camp Offered Beginning June 11|
Girls ages seven to ten can step back in history through an American Girl® Art Camp being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
The American Girls Collection® involves engaging stories about girls living at important times in the past which bring history to life for grade-school girls. Campers will explore the past and discover what life was like during the times of these characters. Participants will visit Molly as she lives through World War II, travel to colonial days with Felicity, go to Minnesota with Swedish pioneer girl Kirsten, and join Samantha as she learns what it means to be "a proper young lady" at the turn of the century. Along the way, campers will enjoy stories, craft projects, and other hands-on activities. Search for the keyword "art" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
This program will meet at 10 a.m. Monday through Thursday beginning June 11 at the Roeland Park Community Center, 4850 Rosewood, Roeland Park. The cost for four 90-minute sessions is $55 per girl for Johnson County residents or $61 per girl for nonresidents. This will be the first of five sessions of this camp offered this summer. Other sessions are scheduled to begin June 18, July 9, July 23, and July 30.
