What's Included

American Dolls and Etiquette are basically two camps in one. Incorporating the historical aspects of the American Girl Dolls and expanding on the particular time and culture of the different dolls, each camper will enjoy discovering how a girl from that time period lived. Each day will be full of stories, games, singing, research, creative activities, and personal sharing. We will look at the doll collections at Saint Mary’s School and at Meredith College while learning some of the history of both of these historical girls' schools. The afternoon will incorporate etiquette and manners and how they really DO matter. Your daughter will participate in many activities that will help her achieve important leadership and social skills. Daily activities will focus on: introductions and greetings; communication skills; correspondence, etiquette for the Internet and cell phones; table manners; image development; respect for yourself and others. The final day will conclude with a Graduation Tea for the girls, their dolls and their families, on the beautiful campus of Saint Mary’s School and experiencing a little of the old south. Kay Walsh grew up in southern Virginia, a daughter of a small town Mayor. She was introduced to the importance of manners, courtesy and respect at a very early age. She is a graduate of Radford University and taught elementary school for over 20 years. The mother of three daughters and nine granddaughters, Mrs. Walsh never stopped playing with dolls and using them to teach.
