This is a great program, not only because of the prolific and detailed information about the Roosevelts, but also because we learned about the history, flora, fauna, Bay of Fundy tides, Old Sow Whirlpool, and Native American culture of the area. Enjoyed the variety of presenters, the food (including some of the Roosevelts' favorite recipes), the boat trip across the bay to Eastport, and the accommodations in the original "Rusticator cottages."

I enjoyed and appreciated this program highly. Excellent leadership. Good variety of presentations. Beautiful island, costal beaches, people. There's a lot of reason this one is among the top RS programs of all time.

Campobello Island with its wild lupine growing everywhere and the Bay of Fundy are extremely beautiful. I have always been an Eleanor Roosevelt fan, but learned much more about them on this trip. Hearing about the Roosevelts and then visiting their home brought them to life in a way I had never imagined.
