Why Do a GrandCamp?
As one set of grandparents commented, “Why would you NOT want to do one! It is the very best thing we have ever done as grandparents.” Godly grandparents care about their grandchildren. They want to influence them to walk in the truth and succeed in all that God has called them to be. Grandparents are second only to parents in their power as spiritual influencers in their grandchildren’s lives. So, here are a few reasons why you ought to consider doing a GrandCamp yourself…
- It is a powerful tool for building and strengthening relationships between grandparents and grandchildren through numerous opportunities for meaningful life conversations. It is a unique adventure that allows the building of memories that last a lifetime, and can impact a child’s life for eternity. Who wouldn’t want an opportunity like that with their grandchildren?
- Grandparents know that it can be challenging finding quality times with grandchildren that provide rich one-on-one time. You don’t have to be a long-distance grandparent to know how challenging that can be. GrandCamp levels the playing field for grandparents in any given situation to be able to withdraw from other life distractions and focus on the relationship with their grandchildren. It is a setting that allows a grandparent’s time to be focused on the grandchildren and God’s plan for their lives.
- One more reason for doing a GrandCamp… your adult children will call you blessed for giving them some vacation time away from the kids for a while.
Why a GrandCamp with your grandchildren? Because they are worth it! Wouldn’t you agree?
