Camp A.O.K.

Campers attending this year's Camp A.O.K. received a special surprise. The Rachael Ray Show dropped in to give the campers a special "prom makeover." Rachael Ray unveiled the surprise via a video message and sent her celebrity friend, Kyan Douglas, to work with the kids throughout the day getting them ready for prom. Terry Foss Photography captured the special day on film.
