So much excitement and news in the doll world right now – and its not all AG – but we are also sooo excited for another summer of fun Camp Doll Diaries which starts June 1. As part of the pre-camp fun, today’s Throwback Thursday features Camp Doll Diaries photos from the past by our readers. 

 From Linda R – Nikki is ironing on her Doll Diaries Camp Iron ons that she ordered from the Doll Diaries Esty Shop. She can’t wait for camp!

From Tea Time with Melody Q – Tea Time with Melody Q girls hanging out in the Bison cabin doing the “Create-A-Story” activity. 

Also from Tea Time with Melody Q – From Camp Doll Diaries 2013. On day 4 the girls had fun around the campfire.

From Sharry – Hello campers! This is a photo of my dolls Danny and Jennifer helping me with the walkie-talkie craft I did for Camp Doll Diaries in 2013 (but as you can see from Jennifer’s shirt, it was 1975!)

From Rachel D – This is the zipper belt craft I made for Elizabeth during fashion week of Camp Doll Diaries 2014.

From Heather – My favorite craft was making a Conestoga wagon.

Also from Heather – My favorite week was the CEO of Me. Jacky and Alison set up their own sweet shoppe.

From Cordelia – Now that Katherine and Rose have arrived at their campsite and pitched their tent, they are enjoying treats cooked over their open fire while sharing wonderful camp memories.

Also from Cordelia – Katherine and Rose had such fun participating in the Camp  Doll Diaries talent show. Rose was an energetic highland dancer and Katherine filled the neighbourhood with bagpipe music.
Another one from Cordelia – The greatest camp adventure for Katherine and Rose was their canoe trip. They are practising safe canoeing by keeping close to shore and wearing their life jackets—I believe that Sharry created the craft for the life jackets.
Thanks for sending in photos – these are such GREAT memories and bring a lot of joy to the entire Doll Diaries staff and community!
