Abstract [en]

"Pensioneer camps", summer camps aimed at older people, has for some years been established in several locations in Sweden. What unites the camps is the claimed positive effect they have for older people's health and quality of life. The stay is said to break isolation and lead to new habits and friendships that endure. This multidisciplinary study focuses on the phenomenon "Pensioneer camp" with the overall aim to study its health and life enhancing potential. Pensioneer camps are examined from a structural cultural-historical perspective focusing on the discourses in action, from an ethnographic perspective, focusing on identity construction and performance of age and from an activity perspective, focusing on quality of life and health in everyday life before and after the camp stay. Key issues are: What impact have older or more general discourses of "summer camp" on the activities? What age coded practices are made possible and how is age performed? How is the camp experienced by the elderly and it can be said to have any long-lasting impact in their lives after their stay? By studying both the individual, cultural and organizational aspects in relation to Pensioneer camps it enables both in- depth scientific knowledge of older people's quality of life and health in general, and, recommendations for future local investment in Pensioneer camps in terms of possibilities and limitations. © Irish Gerontological Society, 2015
