See our Small Group programs.
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.
In 1862, the Battle of Antietam became a legendary event in the history of the Civil War — and remains the single bloodiest day in American history. Learn how the war’s battles proved an invaluable learning tool in the development of modern field medicine during visits to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine and the Pry House Field Hospital Museum.


Highlights

• Get an in-depth look into this period’s contributions to modern medicine and veteran affairs with certified Civil War experts.
• Further examine contemporary veteran issues and ways we may honor veterans with several presenters.
• Visit Antietam National Battlefield to view its annual tribute to fallen heroes — more than 23,000 luminaries lit in memory of each casualty on that historic day.

Activity Notes

Walking less than one mile a day; some uneven grassy areas in National Cemeteries.

Coordinated by Shepherd's Spring Outdoor Ministry Center.
