Ella’s week at Camp Winnarainbow

Ella had an amazing week at Camp Winnarainbow – her first time at sleep away camp, and her moms made it through the week without missing her too much!  The pictures in the first part of this blog were taken by Ella.  She took a camera with her to camp and took some sweet shots and fun videos.  Here are the pics.
