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.

Our 9 year old granddaughter loved this program. She can't decide which activity she liked the best; tennis, golf, swimming, being in the circus or the tree top adventure. The leadership of this program is excellent. Beth, Faron, Jake were were great with adults and kids. I especially want to recognize program assistant, Marci. She took over 1,000 pictures over the week and put them all in Facebook where we can print them, download them or share them with family.

This is a high-energy program without much down time. Grandparents can participate in all of the activities, except a couple of short sessions with the college staff. Come prepared to have fun with your grandchildren!!!

This program was very well planned as well as very well implemented. We had participated in this program six years ago and even though it was good then, it has been fine-tuned and is even better now. Cassie added a number of little and not-so-little touches that were excellent. Beth, Faron, Marcie, and Jake were superb leaders--kudos to all!

My granddaughter and I had a wonderful week in Callaway Gardens. We both enjoyed ziplining, tennis lessons, swimming, playing on Aqua Island (our favorite activity), and making new friends. She got to take golf lessons and 'fly' from a trapeze. This program is very well organized with little 'down' time for children or adults. It is an Active program. And the leaders are wonderful.

Just back from a wonderful time at Callaway Gardens, and a trip which provided a potpourri of experiences for both grandchildren and grandparents. My grandson got up on a circus trapeze and had the time of his life. We also learned a little golf and tennis, did some zip lining and swimming at Aqua Island, played miniature golf and learned about gardening and butterflies in the beautiful conservatory on the grounds. Above all, though, the team of Beth and Faron Thompson, Marcie and Jake and Earnest with their warmth and fun loving spirit makes this program a 10.

Great program. My granddaughter experienced so much that she would not have naturally. We all had a great time. Worry free, active, well organized. The leaders were wonderful. The pace was perfect. As my first Road scholar activity, it exceeded my expectations. The circus class was great, the nature walk, everything.

My two grandsons and I had a fabulous week in this program. We enjoyed the professionalism of the staff, the variety of activities, and the wonder of the beautiful gardens, including the butterflies. We especially enjoyed the pace of the activities which was active, but not too much for either grandparents or kids. My only criticism would be the prizes which contained too much sugar for a healthy child or adult. Thanks to Cassie and her staff for putting on "the greatest show"

This program provided a delightful way to share a variety of educational and physically adventuresome activities with our grand-child. It was not only a fun, but also a very bonding experience! We strongly recommend it!
