While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
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.

Hello. I'm registered for the 4/13/14 class and wonder about the best type of garden shears to bring. Straight-edged, curved pruners, or tong-link blades? Thanks for your thoughts.

I am signed up for the 9/13 class and will be arriving the day the class starts. I am from Oswego, NY.

Unfortunately I had to cancel my reservation for the class. Have you ever taken a basket making class? It's nice that you'll be combining classwork with other activities.

I am enrolled for this program starting on 3/17/13 and will be driving from Franklin,NC (south of Asheville, NC) to Wallops Island. Would love to share all or part of the drive with you. My email address is

Looking forward to seeing you there,

Leanna Hollenbeck
