Doing a happy dance on Summer Island

Gabby (played by Camryn Greve) and Kate (played by Amora Sonnenberg), centre, do a dance together as they are flanked by Meeka (Olivia Vogel) at left, and Capria (Ivy Ling) who are dancing with spears, as they celebrate the end of a week spent on Summer Island, a vacation retreat where the kids had to learn to get along with parents or technology for a week.
