Road Scholar
Program #17352RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
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 - 11 years of age.

Relive your childhood as you explore the lakes, forests and mountains of the Adirondacks with your own grandchild. Learn first-aid, canoeing, camping and fire-making skills. Identify the local fauna, bond with the natural world and with each other. Everyone roll up your sleeves and have some old-fashioned fun and games!


Highlights

• Share with your grandchild yesteryear’s pastimes such as skipping rocks, transmitting codes and ciphers, playing croquet and more.
• Enjoy hands-on explorations by hiking or canoe to learn about the natural world and basic camping/survival skills.
• Bond over ‘smores, tell campfire stories and star gaze as you share the forgotten art of having fun without a computer or cell phone.

Program Notes

Activities are based on experiences in the outdoors, like camping, hiking, and nature identification.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles over uneven terrain; stairs unavoidable.

Coordinated by Sagamore Institute of the Adirondacks.
