“Granny” Camp

BVRA's NEW "Granny Camp"

Know an older community member looking for a fun activity this summer? Looking for something to do with a grandchild? Believe in the unique benefits of inter-generational activities? Then we have just the activity for you!

BVRA is thrilled to introduce our new "Granny Camp"! This program is designed to offer fun bonding activities for kids (ages 3-10) and older community members (anyone who believes they are of "grandparent age"). Our unique curriculum is intended to engage everyone in an environment that reminds us all to stay young at heart.

Activities will include: arts and crafts, gardening, modified yoga, a costume tea time, a scavenger hunt, and other fun ways to bond and enjoy time together.

You may register as a pair (grandparent and child) or as an individual (children can register alone, but must be supervised by a guardian).  We will attempt to pair up individual registrant with an individual of the other age group.

**Disclaimer**: "Granny" is used as a tongue-in-cheek term; and we invite older community members of all genders, mobility levels, and ages to join us!

Why we care about inter-generational programming, and you should too!

Here are just a few of the many benefits you can receive from intergenerational relationships:

  • Children who spend time with older adults growing up are less ageist as they get older
  • It can prevent isolation and loneliness in older adults
  • It provides a perfect opportunity for young and old to learn from one another
  • It builds a stronger community
  • It gives older adults a sense of purpose and helps younger generations have a great respect for and value of older adults
  • It helps keep stories and history alive within families and the greater community

Registration deadline is the week prior to each club session.
