Road Scholar
Program #6249RJ
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 8 - 12 years of age.

Share an unforgettable winter experience with your grandchild in Minnesota's North Woods — one filled with fun hands-on activities and outdoor discovery. Track North Woods animals, learn to find your way in the wilderness and go ice fishing to learn about winter lake ecology. Practice skills long known to Native Americans, meet visitors from the past, and bond over games, crafts, astronomy and much more.


Highlights

• Experience a high ropes course and the rock climbing wall alongside your grandchildren.
• Experience the fun of winter on snowshoes and cross country skis as you explore the snowy environment with local experts.
• Watch a dogsledding demonstration and step aboard a dog sled for a ride through the winter woods.

Activity Notes

Walking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing up to two miles on rugged trails, frozen ground; elevation changes up to 350 feet. Most classes are outdoors and active, regardless of weather. Expect cold winter temperatures.
