Although we were at first a bit concerned about the "middle of nowhere" location for this program, it turned out to be the perfect location for a "family adventure" since it provided room to roam for the kids and was centrally located for all activities. The leaders of our program (Jen, Amy and Karen) were excellent and very willing to share their knowledge of the area and activities. The river raft trip was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

This program was a lot of fun and my son and grandchildren can't stop talking about what a great time we had especially riding the rapids. When we arrived, I was not sure we were at the right place. Here was an old motel littered with old cars and dinosaurs. Soon I learned that the place was fun, clean and well-located. The activities were challenging, but that added to the adventure.

A delightful exposure to the lands and people associated with the Grand Canyon, presented in a way that engaged and informed all three generations in attendance. It was our first exposure to a Road Scholar program and definitely stimulated us to try more.

Great program, and the family nature of the program was a great benefit. Of the 28 participants, ten were children of various ages. They were a great group of kids, and the kids were probably the highlight of the trip for my ten year old granddaughter. She has continued texting with them and has made some friends throughout the country. The program was fun and varied, and the instructors did a great job. Would like to see more family programs which can include three generations.

I had wanted to visit the Grand Canyon for quite some time. This program packaged the visit with several other elements that made it much more enriching and left me with a better understanding of this region in Arizona. And it was packed with fun!
