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. 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 13 - 15 years of age.

Don’t move anything — this is a crime scene! Join your grandchild behind the police tape as experienced police officers, crime scene investigators, a forensic entomologist and a ballistics specialist show you how to process a crime scene using forensic science.


• Try your hand at lifting fingerprints, measure the path of a bullet, record and photograph the crime scene, and recreate a suspect’s face on a computer screen.
• Compare the real thing to what is on television during your visits to law enforcement and forensics facilities.
• Work with a team of sleuths to solve the mystery in a mock crime scene.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Walking on varied terrain, standing up to 60 minutes with limited seating. Mock crime scene activities require crouching, maneuvering in tight spaces for grandchildren.
