Program #9926RJ
7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
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.

My 11-year old grandson and I will be joining the group for the Aug 10-16, 2014 program. We arrive at SLC airport around 10:30am. Anyone else arriving that early? Maybe join up for lunch?

My 12 year old granddaughter and I are going on this June 15th trip and will fly into SLC at 12:55 p.m. Is anyone else signing up for the shuttle around that time?

My grandson George (12) and I are really looking forward to this adventure filled week. We 'll be arriving in SLC around 10:45 am and I've arranged transportation to Park City that should get us there a little after noon. Early for the program check in--so is anyone else getting there early as well?

My 13 year old grandson and I will be arriving into SLC around 8 am. Planning on walking around Park City and having lunch. Maybe we can get together for lunch,etc.

My 15 yr old grandson, Kyle, is taking this trip with me June 23. He comes from Sacramento; I come from Montana. Anybody interested in some before trip communication? Kyle's a runner. We've never been on a grandparent trip before. Ruth
