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.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. 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.

Excited about the program. Driving from Minneapolis area. Both of my parents grew up just across the South Dakota border, so I'm a little bit familiar with this part of Minnesota.

We are coming from Arizona. My husbands ancestors fought in this war. We are looking forward to more information.

Barbara Fett and I are coming from Wisconsin. We find all these topics to be interesting, but particularly the comparative religion part of it. I grew up in the general area of Slayton and we used to go fishing in Lake Shetek. That was many, many years ago,so it will be interesting to return for a few days.

Any thoughts about how the lectures work? Do you sign up for a series or choose each day? Any experience re the lectures?

We're traveling from Maryland for this program, looking forward to it. Any one else from this area? Virginia
