Grandcamp: A Grandfather’s Experience

by Quentin Jackson (Gramps)

Quentin Jackson with his grandson enjoy GrandCamp.

2018 was the second year Joey and I have been to Grand Camp. At the end of camp he always asks “Gramps, can we come back again next year?” What’s so special about Grand Camp? We have been on many trips, including Disney World, but Camp St. Christopher wins out by a large margin. I believe this is for several reasons:

  • The presence of God which pervades everything at St. Christopher.
  • The quality of the program and the leadership team
  • The opportunity for Joey and Gramps to spend five days together without competition from eleven other grandchildren.
  • For Joey to be with his “friends”. He may meet them for the first time at Camp and he may not see them again when he leaves but he always talks about the friends he had at camp.
  • The Spiritual growth that we both experience at Grand Camp.

 

With the first invitations for Grand Camp 2019 now out I want to encourage Grandparents to sign up for this very special experience. I particularly want to encourage Grandfathers to sign up. Too often we leave the grandparenting of the under ten year-olds to Granny but for a boy to have a week of one on one time with his Grandfather will create memories that will last a lifetime.

The accommodation is in the lodge rooms (think mid-priced motel). The food is delicious and there is always more than enough for even the hungriest camper. There is no yard work to do. The schedule leaves plenty of time to enjoy all that St. Christopher has to offer without leaving you exhausted at the end of the day. Your Christian Walk will be enhanced and your relationship with your grandchild will forever be changed.

I have already got June 17-21, 2019 on my calendar for Grand Camp. I look forward to seeing you there.
