Camp Grandma reveals how a successful businesswoman merged her working career with her role as grandmother—and offers grandparents fun and creative ideas for enriching their relationships with their grandchildren while teaching the children valuable life skills that will help them grow strong and think critically. Readers will be introduced to a compelling, sometimes humorous, and totally unexpected twist on a role people often take for granted—as well as enter into the larger societal conversation we should be having about the possibilities and value of grandparenting and how the woman's movement has reinvigorated and reshaped not only women's approach to being a grandmother but men's approach to the grandfather role. Warm cookies and milk are still okay, but what if they came with a workshop on goal setting or writing a business plan for the school year? Babysitting? Not even close.
