Walter Cudnohufsky & Rachel Gibson
This is a letter from 10-year-old Solveig to her grandmother Kai George after they shared the Generations Camp together: “I am thankful for many things, but the thing I am most thankful for is spending time with you at Rowe. I had a lot of fun there. I am thankful for that time because it was fun to be alone with you. Thank you for taking me there. One thing that I loved there was the art classes and the food.”
Grandmas, grandpas, opas, bubbies, adopted and step-grandparents, alone or together — make Memorial Day weekend a memory to treasure for you and your grandkids! You and your darlings will revel in three very special days of music-making, drawing, painting, and games. Sometimes you’ll be together with the grandkids, sometimes with your age-mates. Walt, a distinguished artist and teacher, is a grandfather; Rachel, his daughter-in-law, is an experienced music educator and a mother of small kids. You’ll enjoy legendary meals (fussy eaters cheerfully accommodated!) and have time to share your joys, frustrations, and grandparenting tips with other grandparents. You’ll have a chance to explore together with other grandparents issues such as relating across distance, step-grandparenting, how to listen so kids will talk, passing on the essence of what you believe, dealing lovingly with differences between yourself and your adult children, and much more.
Come prepared to be moved and uplifted! You’ll leave with songs in your heart, writing and matted pieces of art in your hand, and resources to continue the experience. Most of all, you’ll have the warm satisfaction of giving your grandchildren memories they’ll never forget.
This Memorial Day weekend workshop ends on Monday and costs an additional $140 for the extra day. Please add that amount to your total after you’ve entered your program and accommodations fees.
The cost for each child is $100 for the whole weekend.
