It is no longer just children who can enjoy summer camp: now adults can, too. Camp is a great way to learn new skills or just be outdoors. There are unique programs for all types of different personalities, age groups, and interests. For example, if singing with others under the stars appeals to you, there are camps for that. Perhaps campfire cooking or cooking with antique implements is something you have always had an interest in, and now you can go to camp for that. Revisiting a pleasurable experience from your youth with archery, marksmanship, or horseback riding is entirely possible. There are wonderful opportunities for meditation, writing poetry, and everything in between.
A positive experience at summer camp starts with careful planning. Seniors should talk to their doctors first to ensure they are medically able to participate in summer camp activities. Once cleared for camp, seniors should consider whether they want to spend their time only with older adults or an all-ages group. The lives of older adults become more meaningful when they are provided with opportunities to use their capabilities to the maximum potential.
