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.
Join gifted scholars in a beautiful setting at the entrance to the historic Hudson Valley just 55 miles from New York City. In the ambience of rural charm and Victorian homes, learn from instructors who are passionate communicators and entertaining lecturers as well as respected scholars in their fields. Enjoy a wide variety of topics in music, history, contemporary issues, politics, peacemaking, literature, the environment, and people who have changed our world. Be inspired as you absorb stimulating information, rethink old ideas, and gain new perspectives on the world around us. As a special highlight, we'll attend a cultural event.
