Saskatoon seniors go back to summer camp
Going camping is a classic summer tradition and some Saskatoon seniors are getting in on the fun.
Preston Park II Retirement home residents got the chance to participate in a wide variety of activities like archery, cooking, dance and art classes.
The elderly campers also enjoyed a campfire complete with songs, stories and S’mores.
All Seniors Care centres across Canada participated in the inaugural two-day event. The goal is to get residents more active and social.
“It kind of brings them back to their youth a little,” said health and wellness director with Preston Park, Mark Diakiw.
“They get to have some fun like they used to have at summer camp.”
