SPARK! at the History Center of Olmsted County is a monthly program designed specifically for people living with memory loss and their care partners. SPARK! is not about the objects, artwork or documents, but rather the items serve as a jumping-off point for sharing stories, conversation and friendship.
SPARK! is for adults with memory loss and related dementia in the early to middle stages and their care partners. Care partners are encouraged to actively participate. Confidentiality and dignity are always respected.
Space is limited. Register by calling Aaron Saterdalen at 507-282-9447 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
This program is free thanks to the generous support from https://www.madonnalivingcommunity.org
and Jim & Judy Sloan
Jul 24, 2019 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Description: Are you ready to travel back in time? Young boys and girls will have the chance to see what life was like and pretend they lived 150 years ago. They will work alongside an interpreter as they live the life of a pioneer child. Children will tend the garden, beat the rugs, wash clothes, play pioneer games, and more! These children will have the chance to do their own reenacting which not only helps them to remember history more, but also creates an interest in learning more. When children can “participate” in history, it becomes real to them. It is no longer just something that they read about, they now comprehend it. Give your child the chance to be a pioneer, come to Pioneer Life at the Cabin Summer Day Camp. Bring a sack lunch. Snack will be provided. Camps run from 10am-2pm. Please bring a sack lunch and wear appropriate clothing.
$40.00 member/ $45.00 non-member
