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.
Perched on a peninsula that juts into picturesque Sagamore Lake, Great Camp Sagamore is a photographer’s paradise. On this former Vanderbilt wilderness retreat, professional photographers demystify your camera settings and the principles of proper composition. Learn to “see” your subject, whether you’re focusing on rustic, 19th-century buildings or trees bursting forth in their autumnal splendor. In computer workshops, learn how to download and enhance photos, email them to friends and family, and print your masterworks.


Highlights

• Gain confidence to push the envelope of your creativity during constructive photo critiques.
• Delve into the history of Great Camp Sagamore and hear stories of the Vanderbilt family.
• Try your hand at photographing deer, birds and other wildlife in the surrounding woods and waters.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Walking up to one mile on groomed trails and unpaved roads. Standing for periods of time without places to sit.

Date Notes
6/15/2015
Spring in the Adirondacks is a time of renewal and new life — including insects such as black flies. Deep woods repellent is essential to bring with you for programs in May and June. Some people are more bothered than others. For those who are especially sensitive, Sagamore has bug jackets available for use while outdoors. You may also wish to bring your own head net. Conditions are different from year to year, so check for local updates before departure. This programs spends much of the time indoors but does venture outside. Should you wish to come at another time, there is a second session of this course beginning on August 17.

Coordinated by Sagamore Institute of the Adirondacks.
