Create a Book: Family Memories

June 22 - June 27

Create a Book: Family Memories 

Program Leader: Anne Brataas

June 22-27 (short week, Saturday to Thursday)

Bring together favorite family stories to create a book of memories with the help of an experienced writer and facilitator. Your book can be small or large: the detailing of a long-remembered hike together; or a retelling of a trip with grandparents to where they grew up, complete with a hand-drawn map or wisdom gleanings. It can be practical, such as recipes associated with a memory, or imaginary, such as time traveling to meet ancestors or future generations. 

Individuals or groups of family members can work on a book. Anne will supply templates for making books and will guide discussions and reflections to help you bring stories to the surface. You will go home with handwritten and hand-drawn elements ready to be typed or digitized and saved for printing or emailing. If you wish, you may bring a laptop or tablet to camp (WiFi isn’t available).
