Carol and I have been doing Cousin Camp (our Camp Grandma) every summer for about 20 years. We started with attendance of probably about 10 kids at the beginning and have now dwindled down to only a few. Through the years, we graduate our grandkids and their cousins from campers to junior counselors and then to counselors. Unfortunately, once the kids get old enough to be counselors, they don’t want to attend anymore. We bribe the counselors and junior counselors with payment in cold hard cash. Last year, we had two junior counselors and two campers. Carol swears it’s time to give it up. We have two great grandchildren now, so maybe will resurrect it again when they get out of diapers (my rule).
