Program #8009ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
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.

Ragtime, Tin Pan Alley And Dixieland Jazz
Spend a week with one of the country's leading authorities and performers in the field of Ragtime, Dixieland and turn-of-the century popular music. Learn about great musicians like Scott Joplin, W. C. Handy, Irving Berlin, Fats Waller and others, and immerse yourself in the music with live piano performances of the tunes for which these artists are best remembered.

History of the Jekyll Island Club
The Jekyll Island Club was the most exclusive resort in America with members such as J. Pierpont Morgan and William Rockefeller. Discuss the role that the Jekyll Island Club played in the creation of the Federal Reserve Banking System and the first transcontinental telephone call. Learn also about the ecosystem of this coastal environment that drew the rich and famous, both during lectures in the classroom and on field trips outdoors, including beach walks and a visit to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.



Activity Notes

Walking up to a half-mile on the beach for the marsh walk, standing for on-site lectures during excursions, getting on/off a van for the beach walk.
