ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging

ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Just enrolled in this for next July. Wondering from past participants about the travel there and back. Even coming from the Bay Area, we'd have to come the day before. thoughts? Advice? Thanks....
Shirley Mcgrath May 24, 2015 at 10:11 PM

We're signed up for August, from the Bay Area. We need to go the day before to get there by 3 PM following day.
Shirley Mcgrath May 24, 2015 at 10:11 PM

Also have you signed up for flights? I'm just starting to look.

Contact RS we are flying into Campbell River from Vancouver by 3:10pm

We are on the July trip, coming from the Bay Area. Not possible to get us there on the day of the program, so we are going the day before. We will rent a car and see the sights. Renting a car is WAY cheaper than air transfer to and from any local hotel, it appears.

while I'm signed in -- anyone else on the July trip with a grandson age 10 or so?
Jennifer Galovich May 25, 2015 at 05:41 PM

In case anyone else is simlarlly stuck for an extra day -- we found a reasonable hotel (comfort Inn) at a reasonable price and will rent a car for $40.
