There are 70 million grandparents in the U.S. and many of them are younger than ever, very active and engaged, and they don’t want to just spend time with their grandchildren, they want to have adventures with them! Sometimes, though, long distance keeps grandparents and grandchildren further apart than they like.
GrandCamp Adventures is the first company I’ve heard of to develop a line of fun and engaging books, activities, games, and music CDs specifically created to help this new generation of grandparents and their grandchildren build lasting memories and share meaningful time together. The grandparent and grandchild bond is such a precious one. I was very fortunate to have my own maternal grandmother live close by growing up and the time I spent with her as a child is something I always associate with love and fondness. She died the year before I became pregnant with my older daughter and I so wish she could have met my girls!
Speaking of my girls, we’ve been reading GrandCamp Adventures’ Here We Go! Around-the-World Family Adventure, written by Walter Sorrells, an Edgar Award-winning author. The fun illustrations are from Victor Tavares, who worked as a freelance animator in Disney’s TV production of Aladdin. My girls love the story of Savannah, Luca and Aidan and the around the world adventures they share with their Grammie and Papa thanks to a magical compass. The companion music CD, Here We Go, has been a blast to listen to in the car on the way to and from school and out running errands. The catchy upbeat Backwards Day features a reggae beat and is a favorite and we also love I Love My Grandma.
GrandCamp Adventures wil be rolling out new products every month that bring the Here We Go! Around-the-World Family Adventure story book to life, from online digival games to activities that grandparents and grandchildren can enjoy together.
If you’re a grandparent looking for a fun and unique gift to share with your grandchild, I’d definitely recommend checking out GrandCamp Adventures!
