This special course will focus on the relationship between grandmothers and their granddaughters, with activities designed to foster the special bond between these two generations. Through music, a variety of traditional women's hand-crafts and special outdoor activities, participants will have the opportunity to learn how Adirondack traditions have passed from generation to generation.
Intergenerational Road Scholar - Grandfathers and Grandsons: Explore Scouting in the Adirondacks (Grandsons 6-12):
Trail blazing and campfire building -- forgotten arts or important skills? Would your grandson be able to build a warming fire or create a shelter in the woods? For 100 years, the Boy Scout Handbook has been teaching these skills and more to young adventurers -- now is the perfect time to share this knowledge with your grandson. With the historic Sagamore, the 1897 Vanderbilt camp as your setting, share in wonders of nature as you canoe along a pristine Adirondack lake, rely on a compass to blaze and follow trails, and pitch tents and tarps to make camp. Get a hands-on lesson in whittling and knot tying before learning the basics in first aid techniques, or settling down for a ghost story in front of an evening campfire.

Many of our “grands” return annually to build priceless memories. Grandparents can bring one or more grandchildren of any age to this session. This is our 22nd anniversary.
All of our "grands camp" experiences are designed to bring family generations together in a safe and beautiful natural setting. Our programs provide a wide variety of activities designed to embrace the connections between grandparents and grandchildren while fostering a respect for our natural environment and this National Historic Landmark. Come see why Time Magazine has considered Sagamore’s to be “the granddaddy of intergenerational programs.” Many of our “grands” return annually, which is why early registration is recommended.
We will not be sending separate mailings to the children, so grandparents must be sure to share all necessary information they receive with the children and their parents. Should you have any questions, contact us or call (315) 354-5311 ext. 21.
