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 12 - 17 years of age.

Take to the skies like Lindberg and the Wright brothers as you and your grandchild immerse yourselves in the world of aviation past and present over the Wasatch Mountains and deserts. Examine the leading pioneers of air travel, theories of aerodynamics and the definitions of “freedom flight.” Discover air work and landing from knowledgeable experts of the skies and planes and traffic controllers at one of the nation’s largest and most renowned flight instruction programs at Utah Valley University.


Highlights

• Overlook the colored desert rocks and sands as you and your grandchild take to the sky in a real Diamond Katana for two hours apiece.
• Get up close to the Air National Guard’s KC-135 Re-fueling Aircraft Unit and the infamous 388th F-16 Fighter Wing Squadron.
• Engage in a flight simulation as you practice take-off, flying and landing maneuvers.

Activity Notes

Minimal walking; elevations of 5,000 feet.
