Grandparents Camp at Great Camp Sagamore
Sunday, July 15-20, 2018 Special Instructor: Peggy Lynn
Sagamore's Grandparent/Grandchildren camp is designed for grandparents with grandchildren of varied ages between 6-14. This program is the perfect way to reconnect with your grandchildren! Activities during the day include hiking, canoeing, nature activities, music, and craft projects. Our evenings are filled with campfires, concerts, night-hikes, and a good old-fashioned barn dance! Finish the week with a ‘talent’ night, where everyone gets to show off something they've learned. Enjoy a week filled with activities, music and song with Peggy Lynn, as well as nature fun and activities with special guest George Steele. Grandparents can bring one or more grandchildren of any age to this session, as long as they feel they can manage the added responsibility. Just remember: no parents allowed!
A 35% non-refundable, non-transferable deposit per camper is required in order to register; balance due is on or before May 1st. You may also purchase gift certificates for both grandparents and grandchildren.
We will not be sending separate mailings to the children, so grandparents must be sure to share all necessary information they receive with the children and their parents.
In order to register for Grandparents Camp, please contact Sagamore; thank you!
