Kathleen Santopietro will present: What’s a Memory? Storytelling for Seniors
Often residents of senior care facilities become a passive audience for structured activities. This workshop suggests that oral storytelling can provide an alternative to “in-chair” watching, crafting, or non-active listening. Participants review basic brain research surrounding the impact of story on memory, identify elements of effective programs for seniors, and discuss ways storytellers can market oral storytelling in independent, assisted and memory care facilities.
Our nearly annual fall Story Camp happened once again in the beautiful southern mountains of Colorado – an eventful weekend featuring story workshops, circles, and more, all with actual camping!
Read below for more details on Story Camp 2022!
The Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp was our locale for an inspiring weekend of storytelling.
It really was camp! Yes, we were in a pleasant lodge with a story-inspiring large fireplace, eating deliciously cooked meals complete with relaxation and the outdoors at our doorstep let us know we were at camp.
WHAT WE GOT
Soup and salad upon arrival on Friday late afternoon, three full meals Saturday, a Sunday Brunch. A comfortable bed in a double room for two nights. Coffee was available all the time. We were able to bring our own supplemental snacks and drinks if we liked, as there was a kitchen with plenty of space!
Friday evening story circle. Saturday morning story workshop(s), Saturday afternoon combination story activities and free time. Saturday evening story circle. Sunday morning social/story time and brunch, then good-byes to new and old friends. A good time!
The whole weekend! This was camp and we got away from it all! Aside from a few congenial essential camp folks, we were on our own. Our only responsibility was to have fun and listen for the dinner bell. Most people attended most everything though, because who can get enough story?
