Shouldn't retirement planning
Summer camp for adults combines both
May 22, 2007-- For Immediate Release
Gabriola, BC - Retirement planning can be fun. Fit For Retirement
has created a 3-Day Oceanside Retreat on Gabriola Island that is
a 'summer camp for adults.' It allows Boomers to experience a taste
of their future retirement at the same time they are creating it.
"Current retirees give mixed reviews about retirement, but
the one thing they all agree on is the need to plan ahead,"
says Jan Moore, creator of the Retreat. Baby Boomers can learn about
potential pitfalls and glean ideas from those who have already traveled
this path. They are encouraged to have some fun by trying new things
and making friends outside of the workplace.
Moore's advice is to "experiment with hobbies, lifestyles,
locations and activities you think you'll pursue in retirement.
Explore unusual options like participating in an archaeological
dig in Egypt or helping save the green sea turtles in Mexico. Create
a plan to replace the benefits of work and brainstorm income ideas
that tap into your skills and interests. "
Many Boomers are seeking second careers rather than a traditional
retirement. There is a growing trend termed 'Zenployment.' People
are placing personal satisfaction ahead of life in the fast lane,
and aiming for work that offers fulfillment and a chance to make
a difference. Popular ideas include: alternative therapist, doggie
day care, artist and eco-tourism operator.
This 3-Day Retreat allows you to experience life on a Gulf Island
and is an opportunity to map out your future goals. It offers a
menu of recreational activities available on Gabriola, that range
from spa treatments, yoga, kayaking, sailing, cycling and golf to
artist studio visits, live theatre and music lessons.
