Program #20981ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
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.

Christianity and Culture: From Mt. Sinai to Montreat
Look at the continuing and age-old relations between faith (particularly the Christian faith) and various cultures, especially our own. While we look at various stages of history, individuals will be encouraged to apply this knowledge to America today.

Is Liberalism a Dirty Word?
Or a blueprint for the good of man? Liberal values were critical to our founding fathers. Now they are under attack. What’s changed? Using the Great Books Shared Inquiry Method, we will search for the roots of Liberalism and Conservatism and then explore how they've evolved to impact political thinking today.

History of Broadway: Sing Along
Let’s trace the evolution of the Broadway musical from the 1920s to the 1980s and beyond. Discuss the combination of music, dance, plot, character and setting that make up the ideal mix and why it can be so hard to achieve. Along the way, we'll share anecdotes about writers, composers, and performers and sing a song or two from each of the musicals we discuss.


Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

All facilities are in one building, with approximately 300 yards walking required; a few stairs. Outside areas are mountainous, with inclines and uneven terrain.

Coordinated by Montreat Conference Center.
