Growing joy in the garden with Camilla Duplay

This was such a fun day sharing joy with intelligent, confident girls with their Girl Scouts group in this wonderful garden behind the Demuth Community Center. All the girls chose their own spots to jump around the garden, Camilla wanted to do her jump by the lemon trees. As we were about to do her jumps, I noticed this watering can and we incorporated it into her jumping photo session. So fun!

Get to know what makes Camilla jump for joy:
Q: What inspires you to jump for joy?
Dancing, my family and my friends make me happy.

Normal. I jump a lot.
