This was my first Road Scholar Program; and the remarkable effort and attentiveness on the part of our director and the staff at Shepard Springs as well as the lecture and tour guide expertise make me gladly want to sign up for future programs! The historical connections I learned about that were initiated by the American Indians and that have carried through our Colonial, French and Indian and Civil Wars and even to today were remarkable! I learned so very much. The retreat grounds could be no better if you want to reconnect with nature in a variety of ways. Each and every one of my traveling companions was very welcoming and charming and very fun to be with. (Even they taught me a lot.) The week was a true respite for me, I recommend it highly and I would even consider signing up for the same trip again.

This was a good program. Food could have been better.
