Grandparent/GrandChild Camp

EDITOR’S NOTE: Each week, we feature intergenerational program ideas that were tried and successful. This series is a tool to highlight various age-optimized programs and practices. The program descriptions are provided by representatives of the programs. Inclusion in this series does not imply Generations United’s endorsement or recommendation, but rather encourages ideas to inspire other programs.

This week’s cool idea is Grandparent/Grandchild Camp at Camp Phillip in Wisconsin, a half week day camp for grades K and up.

(Check our archives for parts 1-53.)

Adults and children camp in the campground with their equipment.

Grandparents and grandchildren join the staff who provide programs that encourage fellowship and interaction.

Two lunches are included for the children and grandparents.

There are optional activities for adults during the day.

Got something cool you tried that was successful? Why not tweet your cool intergenerational ideas to #cooligideas? You can also post them to our Intergenerational Connections Facebook Group. We want to highlight innovative age-optimized programs and practices through our blog, social media and weekly e-newsletter! Share the inspiration.
