Come be a part of the Manners Camp! We will be learning about The Golden Rule, R-E-S-P-E-C-T, Speaking Skills, Table Manners and much, much more. The kids will come home reminding YOU to keep your elbows off of the table. And just wait until they learn the Interrupting Rule – I promise you will thank us! We will have a fabulous time singing with Judy the Manners Lady, playing games, making crafts and learning proper table skills.
