Program #2005RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
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.

How will you get there?? Would love to book if I can find a ride share...

We were so pleased with our trip to Chincoteague this past June that we have already decided to go back again in June 2015. Anyone considering this is so well worth it!!

Thank you. The photography trip in Oct is my birthday trip this year. Glad to know that it is an area you will return to.

Joy N to Pete A., Also any others, re: Trip Nov. 2. I will be at Norfolk Airport and looking to share transportation to/from Program Site.

We enjoyed the trip on June 1-6 so much that we are planning on going back next year if the same dates and program is offered. Got our fingers crossed. It was so well worth it.

Looks like the 6/1-6/6 program is sold out with just a wait list showing. Will be lots of fun....the more the merrier!

Pete A Apr 03, 2014 at 04:59 PM

I am new to program... Love horses and the seashore... Looking for possible shared transportation from Airport to site.. NOV 2 TRIP....
Barb Saunders Apr 03, 2014 at 08:55 PM

Hi Pete, I am attending the program on June lst so I wouldn't be much help to you with transportation. You will certainly enjoy the program as all Road Scholar programs have NEVER disappointed me. Enjoy!

I'm enrolled on this trip and looking forward to meeting others who might be going. I'm in western NC. There are two of us going and might possibly be adding a third.
