Summer has officially arrived!
During this week the staff introduce the young ladies to travel activities that included their own doll. Each girl was able to bring in their own dolls each day of camp. Who knew how important dressing your doll each morning with just the right outfit could be? Girls engaged in a number of activities for and with their dolls. The most popular activity was making doll cellphones.
Each doll is a representation of each girl, her personality, how she feels about herself and how she sees herself. The goal of this week was to give girls a glimpse of culture, diversity, and learn how to accept ones self. The ladies made passports for themselves and their doll. The girls also built their own London bridges and Eiffel Towers. The staff introduced the girls to different cultures by having the ladies build the London Bridges and Eiffel Towers to show them the many places that share different outlooks.
The girls were introduced to diversity through the American Girl doll series. Girls learned about a few of the different American Girl dolls, their lives and how it is okay to be yourself, no matter where you are from.
The first week of summer camp at Girls University went great and the girls now understand what it means to be inspired, motivated, and educated by taking a deeper look at the world around them. #dollstravel
