ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy

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.
Come to Georgia to master your contract bridge skills and to experience the fascinating nature and history of beautiful Jekyll Island. Each morning, learn from our bridge expert who provides practical instruction on leads, defense, signals and how to play higher opening no-trump bids. Then, in the afternoon, enjoy a combination of scholarly lectures and in-depth field trips to learn about Jekyll Island’s Gilded Age history and ecology. Board a tram to visit the 240-acre National Historic Landmark District and learn first-hand about the ecosystem of this coastal environment on a beach walk and a visit to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center. Spend your evenings practicing your new bridge skills in sessions of “no agenda” play, with the instructor on-hand to answer questions and give pointers. Enjoy the week at the elegant and historic Jekyll Island Club Hotel, a National Historic Landmark.


Highlights

• Improve your bridge skills under the tutelage of a Life Master of the American Contract Bridge League.
• Discover the cultural history of Jekyll Island, originally a retreat for wealthy Gilded Age millionaires like J. Pierpont Morgan and William Rockefeller.
