See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. 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.
Experience life as the Roosevelts and other “rusticators” lived it during their summers on Campobello Island. Explore Passamaquoddy Bay as seals and porpoises play beside your boat and lighthouses tower overhead. See for yourself what brought the Roosevelts back year after year as you encounter the people and places they held dear. Picnic at a favorite spot of Franklin and Eleanor, meet offspring of people they knew and relish the exclusive opportunity to lodge in the cottages of their beloved summer retreat.


• Stay in cottages on the grounds of the exclusive Roosevelt retreat in Roosevelt-Campobello International Park.
• Learn about island life for Franklin and Eleanor through expert lectures, walks along beaches they loved, tea time and more in the places they once occupied.
• Visit the Library and Museum that Eleanor helped support, dine at the church hall where Franklin was a warden, feast on lobster and take a study cruise on Passamaquoddy Bay where Franklin learned to sail.
