JOPLIN, Mo. - The Spring River Christian Village is helping close the generation gap with crafts.
At least, that's the goal of the Lost Art Day Camp.
The kids learned morse code, knitting and how to build a bird house.
All of these different skills were taught by those in the older generation.
The point is so the grandparent aged residents can connect with the new generation.
"It's important to the adults and the seniors because they have a lot of knowledge, a lot of experience that they really need to share. It's something that's been important in their life and they like to share it," explains Lifestyle Coordinator Susan Lincoln.
She adds it's a benefit for both generations, especially for the kids, because these are arts that are essentially not being taught anymore.
