Road Scholar
Program #4759RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
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.

Maureen Porta from East Hampton, NY My name is Julia & I am 11 years old.This trip was unforgettable. I meet a really nice girl and all of the kids were really friendly too. During the trip we were always doing something fun. I already had learned a bit about colonial times in school but this gave me a better visual about colonial America. My two favorite parts were when I was marching in the colonial militia in Yorktown and colonial dancing.

This is a Road Scholar Program not to be missed! It awakened a love of American history for two 11-year old boys. Last year we took three boys to a Gettysburg Road Scholar Program and they talked about it for 12 months and I anticipate the same reaction!

My granddaughter, Leila and I really enjoyed the program! It brought us closer together since we live in different states. Lee Gutman

We loved the program! As a former teacher, I appreciated how educationally sound the program was besides being very interesting and a lot of fun. Our granddaughter loved every bit of it.

This was an excellent program to take with my granddaughter. The children and grandparents were kept very busy with a lot of hands on participation. There was adequate free time as well as organized time. The whole experience brought the peri-revolutionary time to life for all of us. I highly recommend this program
