The best intergenerational program, out of five,in which we have participated. Great activities, location, and leaders. Full of exciting, challenging and rewarding activities in a beautiful setting.

This was a lot of fun for older grand children, and loved that most of the time we were outdoors. Seeing the Olympic training areas with Olympic hopefuls in practice as well as experiencing the challenge of trying new things was a lot of fun! The program is very diverse and I would recommend it for those active grandparents who can keep up with the kids!

This program is the best. We have now been with this program for two years, and neither time were we dissappointd. I highly recomend the Hot Air mountain program.

If you go to this adventure, please take advantage of all the fun. I felt like a kid again and I am 73. Perfect trip for a somewhat adventurous grandma and 13 year old grandson.

Here's some feedback from my 14 year old granddaughter. “I really enjoyed my Road Scholar trip. Although I originally had my reservations, I had so much fun meeting new people and making friends. I also loved the chance to spend a lot of time with my grandmother. Although we did a lot of amazing activities, by far my favorites were the Adventure At Every Turn park and the geode making; both of them just blew my mind."

This was the most exhilarating trip I've ever been on! Wonderful activities and presentations. I want to take other grandchildren on this same trip!

My grandson and I both rated this program a "10." We made friends immediately with the other grandchildren and grandparents and thoroughly enjoyed all the activities. We had a fairly large group but the group leaders were so organized,patient and helpful that all went smoothly. The food was excellent and the accommodations convenient.

The "Rocky Mountain Adventure" was a fantasic intergenerational experience. Great leaders: knowledgable, caring, organized and fun! The food could not have been better. The adventures were diverse, challenging but accommodating, and FUN for both age groups.

This trip was everything we hoped for and so much more! Everything was top notch from beginning to end. The leadership was wonderful...meals by Gary & Sandy were outstanding...the activities were engaging and fun for both grandparents & grandchildren. Everyone had a great time together, and we are grateful for this special time to create lasting memories for us and our granddaughter! We loved it!

The Park City adventure program was phenomenal! Our group was just the right size and cohesive. Every one - grandparents and grandchildren - interacted well and appreciated each other. Every activity as fun, exciting and challenging. Our leaders were the best. The home cooked meals were delicious. We have wonderful memories to keep. We highly recommend it.

A wonderful adventure for grandkids and grandparents. Very well organized and great leaders. My first intergenerational experience and I was very pleased. I appreciated the group being small(22 participants) vs 50!

Wonderful trip. It exceeded my expectations. My grandson said it was the best trip he has ever taken--it was our first Road Scholar trip..

Fabulous adventure for me and my grandson. Non-stop learning and great day trips, this one is not to be missed! Park City was beautiful and we even got to play in snow in June! (not their usual June temps). The people in charge were professional, knowledgeable and best of all, fun! Food was amazing as well! Thank you Kathleen, Trent, Gary and Sandy!
