This girls-only STEAM camp is inspired by your favorite American Girl Dolls and their enthusiasm for making the world a better place.
Girls got game! Step back into the 1970s with Julie Albright as we explore the history of girls in sports. Play games, design games and advocate for girls. Groovy!
Are you ready for liftoff? Design, build, and launch a rocket just like Maryellen Larkin! We'll learn about the space race and the women that contributed to the success of the 1969 lunar landing.
Listen up! We'll sing, dance and explore the music of the Civil Rights Era with Melody Ellison.
Make it mini! Combine engineering and art to design a doll-sized chair. Craft accessories, including matching jewelry for you and your doll.
