WAKEFIELD -

The last day of summer camp for some girls in Wakefield ended with dancing and bonds of sisterhood strongly intact.

For the last eight weeks, about 17 young girls from 7 to 12 years old have been a part of the Evolving Beauties Camp program.

At the camp they learned about proper etiquette, friendship, female empowerment and dance.

Parents say they have seen their children blossom from being shy to making new friends.

The organizer tells News 12 that even though the summer has come to an end, she hopes to continue to empower girls through an after-school program.

Both programs have a weekly tuition.
