The disabilities are mostly physical, but there are certainly a lot of social/emotional issues as well. Camp presents a rare opportunity for these girls to hang out with peers and just have some fun, make some crafts and learn a few things. Mostly they just have fun.
This week Maggie painted her nails, made lip balm, learned about makeup and skin care, discussed relationships, made tie-dye, listened to music, made jewelry and a box to put it in. She learned about manners and had fun doing it. She also had fun taking pictures, as I wrote about the other day.

Today is the party and we have to say goodbye. One of these years Maggie will be too old for Girls Rock, but thankfully not yet.
