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.

This was a very interesting and informative program. Lori, our program coordinator, was superb. The program provided some very interesting field trips including a short cruise on Lake Superior. Marquette, is a real gem and it was fun staying on the campus of Northern Michigan University. Although the dorm rooms appeared spartan at first glance - they were, still, very comfortable. Meals with the campus food service were excellent. Mr. Stonehouse was a font of maritime history! Anyone interested in maritime history and a desire to view the fantastic Lake Superior should put his program on their short list.

Think you know history about the Great Lakes is only about the water? Think again. The Great Lakes Maritime History program plunges you into events and characters of the past as well as the effects generated by present-day affairs of these waters and the lands attached to them.
