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.

Excellent, would highly recommend this vacation. My granddaughter and I have just returned and I can honestly say that not a moment was wasted. All of the activities kept the children entertained and enthralled, and yet there was still time to make new friends and just play. Eric and Michelle did a superb job and ECCO was beautiful. A truly memorable vacation. Can't wait to take another of my grandchildren on vacation.

The two days in Yosemite were wonderful and the other field trips and activities seemed to match the children's interests very well.

What a great way to spend quality time with your grandchildren. My husband and I attended this program with two grandchildren who are cousins. From the 1st night when we saw the Perseids Meteor Shower, to watching in amazement as the children made underwater robots (that worked!)we were thrilled. All in the beautiful forest in and around Yosemite.

Yosemite is such a lovely area. We enjoyed being there with our granddaughters, and learning from our teachers, who were local people about the struggle to preserve it from development, the gold rush history, and the natural history. I think anyone would be glad they chose this program.
