NYQUEST Grandparent Camp

NYQUEST Grandparent Camp brings together grandparents and their grandchildren in a completely new way, and in a supportive, comfortable outdoor/indoor setting. Through joint activities and experiences shared with each other at camp, the intergenerational relationship between grandparent and grandchild is deepened and strengthened. The grandparents will participate directly with their grandchildren in most activities and in some activities they will observe as the grandchildren have fun with the NYQUEST staff. There will also be opportunities for the grandparents to relax and enjoy the camp on their own as their grandchildren are fully supervised and engaged in our camp programming. Create your own memories, enjoy life together at your own pace and make the most of that special bond that only exists between grandparents and their grandchildren.

There is something in the program for everyone and there is also full support available at all times by the fantastic NYQUEST camp staff. You can rest assured that your time at Grandparent Camp will be fun-filled, meaningful and bursting with memories of a special time shared with you and your grandchildren.

Sorry, no parents allowed!
