GrandCamp Adventures Review

My grandparents meant the world to me growing up and left me with memories that I will treasure forever. Meme and Papa were the most loving and nurturing grandparents and I am so thankful for the impact they had on my life. I remember being so excited when they would arrive from Quebec every year to spend the winter and those were the best times of my life.

GrandCamp Adventures celebrates the very special relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren. GrandCamp Adventures products were created to build on these unique relationships and set the stage for fun memories that will last forever.

GrandCamp Adventures has a great line of holiday gift ideas that would be perfect for grandparents and their grandchildren. One of the gift ideas that I really like is the “Here We Go! Around the World”Storybook & CD Fun Pack. The fun pack set came very attractively boxed in a red file that is easy to keep stored for those times when the grandkids or grandparents come to visit. “Here We Go! Around the World” is written by Walter Sorrells and illustrated by Victor Tavares of Disney acclaim. This multi-generational adventure sends three young children and their world traveling grandparents on a treasure hunt in their backyard using a magical compass that will see them through faraway lands, castles, quicksand and even a meerkat who stows away. The full color illustrations are fantastic and really bring the quirky characters to life perfectly. The book sets the stage to inspire lots of fun with games and activities such as the “3-in-1 Handshake Game” where you and your grandkids can create your very own secret handshake and play memory games. The accompanying “Here We Go!” CD has 10 songs that include jazz, reggae, bluegrass and more so it is appealing to young and old alike. My father-in-law was visiting from Ohio when the GrandCamp Adventures kit arrived and it was so much fun to watch my three little ones and their 75 year old grandfather dance around the living room to “Old Granddad”. This music CD was loads of fun and everyone was silly and having a blast. I can almost guarantee they will never forget watching their Pop Pop hoof it up with them that day.

I love the idea of a company that has specific products designed to build on the grandparent/grandchild relationship. GrandCamp Adventures hits the mark with products that are going to appeal to both older and younger participants and is sure to be loads of fun. Would you like to see how it works? The GrandCamp Adventure website even has a great resource section to help inspire including links and fun videos.

Look no further for the perfect holiday gift for grandparents and grandchildren. GrandCamp Adventures has great ideas to suit every budget. I recommend the “Here We Go! Around the World” Fun Pack which is only $29.99 and can be purchased online.
