Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
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.
Assist the students and educators in schools on the Navajo Reservation, where many families continue to burn wood for warmth, haul water and use generators for electricity. Learn about educational challenges on the Navajo Nation. The only requirement of volunteers is flexibility and adaptability.


• Explore the rewards of helping students and working with teachers as you interact with children and educational staff in a classroom setting.
• Enjoy a field trip to a traditional Navajo hogan with your Navajo program coordinator.
• Evening programs on Navajo culture provide additional insight into the challenges faced by tribal members.
