Grandparent with a Purpose
Christian Grandparenting Network has sponsored GrandCamp for grandparents and their grandchildren and are unlike any camp you have ever known. They offer a unique adventure and the opportunity to build lasting memories and milestones away from the distractions of life.
This year the GrandCamp will be from July 30 to August 3 starting in just a few days. I would like to ask you to pray for each of the grandparents and grandchildren that will be attending to have a special intergenerational bonding time as they relate to one another. Pray for safety in camp and for travel since many are traveling a long distance. Pray for spiritual growth as these children are taught from God’s Word.
Description of GrandCamp
The GrandCamp package includes 4 nights lodging, linens, and all meals from supper on day of arrival through breakfast on day of departure, classes and materials, crafts, t-shirts, welcome bag, swimming, fishing, hiking, off site activity (Cowboy cookout and hayride), awards and more! Not included in your package price: store items, personal excursions or extra activities such as horseback riding. GrandCamp is for grandparents and grandkids ages 7 and up.
NOTE TO MILITARY FAMILIES FOR NEXT YEAR: If your grandchild has parents who are still active military, you may qualify for a military discount or scholarships for your child to attend our GrandCamp program with you. It's a way we can say "thank you" to our military servicemen and their families. We are grateful to all the individual and business partners who make this possible.

Testimonials from the CGN website:
It was such a blessing to have my grandchildren tell me they felt closer to me than ever before. It was also a blessing to enjoy the personal relationships with the staff – warm, friendly communication and an obvious love for Jesus.
Each activity was so enjoyable in very different ways – rafting, campfire, etc. In each one, we were able to share our lives, but each in a different way.
This was better than any other camp I’ve done! I wish I could spend more time like this with my grandparents.
