For the fourth year running, Grand Sparks will be a fun week for children and their grandparents at the Edge of Walton. Registration for 2018 is open! The day camp will run July 9-13, 9am to 12-noon each day, cost is $125/person and includes lunch every day.

Grand Sparks is a one-week activity day camp that will challenge grandparents to interactive outdoor play and recreation with their grandchildren (ages 5 and up). The ultimate goal of Grand Sparks is two-fold: 1) motivate older-adults to become more active and find a recreational activity that becomes a shared, routine, interactive pastime with youth, and 2) educate and encourage children to make healthy nutritional choices by getting them involved in meal preparation.

Small local businesses and individuals will lead sessions in adventure hiking, canoeing, biking, yoga, and much more. This program will also include nutrition workshops daily, where lunch is prepared together, after a morning of physical activity.

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. Don't worry if you feel you are "out of shape!" We can modify the activities to suit the physical abilities of the participants.
