This week nine young ladies went back in time with their various American Girl Dolls for three days of camp hosted by the Orange Historical Society.
The camp took place in Room 4 of the High Plains Community Center from 9 a.m. to noon on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Each day included an activity, lessons on a certain decade, and a story about a particular doll.
On Monday, the girls learned how to make candles.
Tuesday was a delicious lesson on making cookie batter, which the girls rolled into logs and then took home to bake.
On Wednesday the campers received peace sign bracelets (from the 70s) a sewing lesson, stuffing and sewing pillows for their dolls.
After a snack, the girls learned that a non-electronic game can be fun. Then they gathered in the reading circle for the tale of a girl in the 70s who fought to play a “boys sport” in school. The big lesson of the day, Girls can do anything, and be whatever they want to be if they show determination and never give up on their dreams.
