Grand Sparks is a one-week activity day camp that will challenge grandparents to interactive outdoor play and recreation with their grandchildren. The ultimate goal is to motivate seniors to become more active and find a recreational activity that becomes a shared, routine, interactive pastime with youth. Small local businesses and individuals will lead sessions in adventure hiking, canoeing, biking, yoga, strength training and much more. This program will also include nutrition workshops daily.
You don’t have to officially be a senior, or a grandparent, to participate. You only need to be an older adult bringing a youth partner, and lots of sunscreen.
This program has been developed in conjunction with Gateway Centre of Excellence in Rural Health.
