ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
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.

Please note that changes may occur.

Pat Burdick

Pat Burdick is an expert naturalist, educator and a member of the Biology Department at the State University of New York, Potsdam. Her love of the Adirondacks is deep, as anyone who has heard her talk about the area’s flora and fauna or who has been paddling out on the water with her will attest. Pat enjoys sharing her knowledge of the Adirondacks with both adults and children on Road Scholar programs.

Nancy Foltz

Nancy Sue Foltz is an artist and certified art teacher who has been directing the crafts program at Great Camp Sagamore for almost a decade. A former high school teacher, she focuses on offering a wide variety of age-appropriate crafts. From pots to plant pressing, from pine cone art to painting tee shirts, from papier mache to paper hats and so many things in between, her ideas are always fresh. Grandkids will end up with some great, outdoorsy craft projects to bring home. Among her other duties at Sagamore, Nancy Sue is also the group leader for many Road Scholar programs.

Ms. Trish Miller

Trish Miller has been teaching and performing Appalachian clogging since 1980. She plays guitar, banjo and mandolin, and also calls dances and has choreographed country routines for theater and concerts. Trish gained professional dance experience with the Green Grass Cloggers, and performed with them internationally as well as across the U.S. Since 1985, Trish and her husband, John Kirk, have been working together as teaching artists in school music and dance programs.

Dan Duggan

Dan Duggan is a nationally-known performer and teacher, as well as one of the finest hammered-dulcimer players and composers in the country. As recipient of the prestigious National Hammered Dulcimer Championship, Dan's accomplishment is even more considerable as he is the first winner to have performed all original compositions. He is a member of the Susquehanna String Band, a trio which has performed two pieces, "The Celtic Suite" and "The Americana Suite" in concert with several symphony orchestras throughout the country. The Susquehanna String Band has released three recordings including, "The Cloths of Heaven," "North Country" and "Singing All The Way Home." Dan strives to bring traditional music and instrumentation to audiences unfamiliar with this genre of music through his innovative blending of traditional instrumentation and creative musical format.
