Welcome

Welcome to Tea Time Etiquette Camp for Girls® (TTE).  Your daughter is setting the stage for girls who will follow, all deserving the finest that life has to offer.  We will help her discover who she is, help her realize her potential, that her opinion matters, and that she has a special place in your home and community.   Together, we will practice the Golden Rule.  It is a standard by which we can gauge our actions: treat other people the way you would like to be treated.  She will learn so much: proper eating manners, formal dining, and social behavior. If she comes each day with a loving heart and a good attitude to learn, we promise your daughter will enjoy every minute of each day of this summer camp.  It is our hope that she will make lifelong friends here.
