Make this a summer to remember. Make a memento your family will treasure for years to come.
In this 3-day online camp, Vita Story Club and Empowering the Ages creatively engage older and younger members of your family in meaningful conversation and story-telling, both within your own family and in a small group. After all your laughter, sharing, and learning together, we assemble a digital family collage from the audio stories captured during the sessions.
Open to ages 10-100+
Family members do not need to be in the same home! This is a great opportunity for youth and older relatives to re-connect across long distances.
All camp sessions are through Zoom (video preferred, or dial-in via telephone).
Youth will learn and practice interview skills, converse with other youth and older family members, and have the satisfaction of helping create a treasured family heirloom.
