Indian Princesses

What is it?  Dads and their daughters spend time together...it is that simple.What is great about Indian Princesses…is that Dads do things WITH their daughters and you build great memories to last TWO lifetimes. Girls (and dads) make friends outside their typical sphere, learn team-work, morals, native American culture, all while having a blast camping, canoeing, exploring, sledding, rock climbing, games, crafts and much more!
