Camp Ageless returns to Patriot Ridge Community to combat ageism

Camp AgelessFAIRBORN  – Youth age 4 and older are invited to the fifth annual Camp Ageless, a program that combats ageism in the Fairborn area by bringing together youth and older adults for a day of fun and learning.

Camp Ageless will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 9 in the Main Street Café at Patriot Ridge Community, 789 Stoneybrook Trail, Fairborn. The schedule includes games, a DARE program and a visit from Greene County’s fire truck.

Camp Ageless, an annual, one-day event, grew out of a challenge to create an innovative program for Patriot Ridge residents. Administrator Jeremy Lemon said all the activities will engage participants in a positive way.

“We invite local youth to join us for a day of fun. In the past, participants have been children of our staff, along with kids from Fairborn and the surrounding area,” Lemon said. “The camp meets ageism head on. Because everyone works and plays together during Camp Ageless, the day helps dispel the myth of what specific age groups like or should be doing.”

Attendees are invited to wear their favorite T-shirts and comfortable shoes. Advanced registration is required and may be made by contacting Patriot Ridge Community at 937.878.0262.
