Program #17895ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
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.
Many people know humanism only for what it rejects — religious dogma and the supernatural. But what is this world view with roots reaching back to Ancient Greece really all about? Discuss issues and ideas both historic and modern as you examine the great questions of life and the answers humanism provides. Find out what humanism has to say when it comes to civil liberties, religious freedom, feminism, racism and more.


Highlights

• How do humans develop morals? Logic? Creativity? Address these big questions and more in expert lectures and lively discussions.
• Explore the ideas of modern-day humanists like Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennet and Sam Harris.
• Enjoy optional expert-led nature walks near the base of Mount Snow.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
