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.
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
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.

If you have a desire to explore your creative side (even if you think you don't have one), enroll with Louise. She will teach you to paint with "pizzazz" and have fun!!

Wow! What a fabulous week in beautiful Warwick, NY! Ken and Arlene were awsome hosts as well as all the staff there at the Warwick Center! Louise Minks was the PERFECT instructor for this beginner! So encouraging! The information she had to share through her words and demonstrations opened a whole new world to me. Our class was awesome and I really enjoyed each and everyone of people I met. Only complaint is that it went by too fast! I hope I can go back!

Joyce from Saratoga Springs Arlene and Ken are the perfect hosts and the Warwick Center an ideal facility for R&R and C&D (Creativity and Discovery). Louise Minx was a joy! She is a real "teacher's teacher", supportive, encouraging, she knows how to take each student from where they are and move them along at their own pace. Her demonstration lessons and willingness to share her personal creative insights, while responding to student needs and interests made the five days fly by. I can't wait to return in the spring!

It's such a wonderful way for single seniors to vacation, without having to depend on family or friends at home. After 25 Programs, I can honestly say that I have enjoyed all of them because of the comfort and safety I experience, not to mention the FUN in meeting new people every time.
