A special week of fun, adventure, and learning to share with your grandchild. Both of you will have memories that will last a lifetime.

This was a wonderful intergenerational program. The guides were outstanding. Everything was very organized, and the educational component was perfect for children. I will always have wonderful memories of a unique adventure with my granddaughter. The scenery was fantastic, and the activities were exciting.

My nine year old grandson and I had the time of our lives! There was variety, education and great fun as well as excellent leadership.

This was our second intergenerational trip. On a scale of 1-10 (highest), it earned an 11. Every lesson got the kids (and grandparents) out of their seats to do engaging things. Of course, the outdoor activities were phenomenal. The heart of our program was the inspired leader, Garrett Roberts. Smart, organized, creative, wise, he was a delight.

This program exceeded my expectations! It was a thrill to view the Grand Canyon a mile below the rim while whitewater rafting on the Colorado River, and then fly out of the Canyon on a helicopter. You can't get more "up close and personal" than that! All of the activities and adventures in this program are well planned to make sure you have an experience you'll never forget!

Absolutely FANTASTIC and delightful trip-of-a-lifetime with my 9-year-old grandson!

We had a very good time and so did our 11 year old grandson. It was our first intergeneration trip with Road Scholar, and, as usual, Road Scholar did not disappoint. Always has the very best people for lectures and other educational events.

This is a 'remember for a lifetime' trip because of the activities, the education AND most importantly, the staff.
