Our Story

Grandparent Station® is the place for grands.  As part of Grandparent Station®, we have created a special brand for grandchildren called Camp Nana Papa®, and The Grand Life, a lifestyle brand for grandparents. Nothing is more meaningful and fulfilling than becoming a grandparent. There is an unspeakable love born with the arrival of one's first grandchild; and thereafter, the more the merrier! 

Donnie Cranfill, the creator and founder of Grandparent Station®, The Grand Life and Camp Nana Papa®, began to notice that many of his friends and business associates were becoming grandparents. Once a grandparent, their behavior and activities on all social media channels showed a drastic change - every picture and video seemed to be related to their new status in life as a grandparent. There was an unmistakable and palpable level of passion and joy in their lives like never before. Reflecting on the many life memories he had experienced with his grandmother, Flora Bell Carlton, and thus, Grandparent Station® , The Grand Life and Camp Nana Papa® were born.   

The goal of Grandparent Station®  is to discover ways to celebrate and memorialize the many memories of the grandchild-grandparent relationship. In everything we do, our mission is to help families "Make Grand Memories".

Grandparent Station® continues to create ideas, provide tools and resources, and connect grandparents and grandchildren around the world. We invite you to be a part of this journey. You can purchase products and connect with "Grands" everywhere in the world through our social media channels and get great ideas for activities from our blog and Facebook page.
