Laurapalooza 2012 was a lot of fun -- just ask anyone who went! Everyone really seemed to enjoy themselves and have a great time.
But another event taking place just around the corner captured the interest of many conference attendees, causing a number of them to wish they could sneak away from Laurapalooza just for a bit to take part in this other event instead. That event? Camp Laura, of course!
Think of it. At Laurapalooza, you listen to Barbara Walker speak about the research behind her cookbook. At Camp Laura, you bake heart-shaped cakes with her -- and eat them, too!
At Laurapalooza, you attend Alison Arngrim's hilariously funny comedy show, and if you're lucky, get a few seconds to speak with her after the show. At Camp Laura, you teach Alison -- er, Nellie -- to play games Ingalls-style (she knew Uncle John, of course, from playing it on television, but Pussy in the Corner was a new one for her!), and act out stories from television episodes (although our bright girls kept turning it around into stories from the books!) with Nellie herself!
See what I mean? And there's so much more to do at Camp Laura!
Play Cat's Cradle. Make an autograph album. Namecards too. They're all the rage in Iowa, you know. Churn butter. Bake sourdough bread. Play Laura with other little girls who love her as much as you do. Dance to fiddle music. Spell in a spelling bee. Play Ring Around the Rosy... and Uncle John. Wear braids and a sunbonnet, and let it hang down your back if you want to because nobody cares if you're brown as an Indian. And so much more!
Now don't you wish you could go to Camp Laura?
