Summer Camp Program

Mel, what I love about SCAN@Y is “no promises made or outcome predicted.”  When I joined in January, it was based on a list of activities.  Nobody explained or provided a “syllabus” of what would be covered in art, sit ‘n b fit, tai chi, etc.  I had no expectations.  Since joining, I have met a group of folk I like.  We socialize, compliment and encourage one another, but it do not intrude into one’s person life.  There are NO personal phone calls, FaceTime® or social media.  When we begin on Tuesday, it is quiet as we drink a hot beverage, think, reminisce or whatever.  The group of over 50’s consist of singles, widows, widowers, partnerships.  There isn’t any judging or criticisms beyond the norm in group interaction.  I’ve lost about 12 pounds since inception of the program and have sustained this weight lost.  I eat better, drink more water and have eliminated soda and sugary drinks.  It is wonderful to get up in the morning and have a place to go once a week.  I think daily wouldn’t work, but once a week is doable.  Pat, SCAN, mentioned extending the program to two days; however, I would suggest attending one of two days, e.g. Tuesday or Thursday.  As expressed by participants at the “public meeting” 6/21/2016, there is nothing else like SCan@Y.  The list of activities have nothing to do with planning for the inevitable, care giving, or the so-called pitfalls of aging.  We walk out the door each week with back straight, head up, looking forward to next Tuesday.–Anonymous.
