At summer camp, baby boomers relive their youth with archery and show-and-tell

Linda Levy jumped at the opportunity to attend Camp Meraki near Austin, Texas.

As a kid she went to summer camp every year and later she worked as a camp nurse at multiple camps. “That is my happy place,” said the 68-year-old retired nurse who now works in retail.

The program, which was run by Aging Is Cool, an Austin, Texas-based group that organizes social and physical activities for retirees, was like the summer camps she attended as a kid in many ways. There was a set schedule, campers slept in community bunks — although this time with air conditioning — and at meal time “you ate what was in front of you,” Levy said.
