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.

My husband, our two 10 year old grandsons, and I greatly enjoyed our Road Scholar experience based on Amelia Island. The program was well organized, educational and engaging for all ages and the staff was outstanding. Our boys particularly enjoyed their time on Cumberland Island, "shrimping" on the Lady Jane and our Oekefenokee Swamp adventure.

Great trip for grandkids and grandparents. Excellent instructors, varied and fun learning experiences and a wonderful group of "scholars." Many new friendships were made, and the leadership of Carole was perfect. My 10 year old granddaughter loved the entire experience! And I did too!

"Come along for a shrimp trawl on a real shrimp vessel, The Lady Jane. Boat into the Atlantic Ocean where you will seine for shrimp or for whatever comes up in the nets. We always bring up a few shark, stingrays, shrimp and all kinds of fish. Your guide on-board will tell you all about boating and shrimping. Boat trip is about two hours long. " Uploaded By: Bobbie
