Program #19819ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
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.

Program intended for grandchildren from 10 - 12 years of age.

Explore the world without crossing an ocean as you and your grandchild immerse yourselves in a kaleidoscope of cultures at a Heifer International Global Village. Inside replicas of traditional homes from around the world, enjoy the games, foods, dress and stories of Kenya, Thailand, Tibet, Mozambique, Guatemala and other countries. Create and play your own drum inspired by authentic African examples, visit the National Zoo to see the wildlife of faraway lands and peruse exotic goods at the International Marketplace. Explore a different continent each day, create your own passport to help you get around the village, and enjoy nature walks, swimming, campfires and more when you’re not busy discovering the far corners of the globe.
