EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. 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.
Let your lens capture the patriotic essence of Mount Rushmore and the elusive mystique of Crazy Horse Monument in the Black Hills and the layers of color and spine-shaped peaks of the Badlands. With hands-on instruction by a professional photographer, learn the basics of digital photography’s composition, exposure and lighting.


• Capture photos unique to Rapid City, including life-size president’s Statues, rose garden and Stave Kirk.
• Snap photos of Mount Rushmore and Custer state park from various angles, spotting prairie grasses, water falls, bison, bighorn sheep and golden eagles.
• Let your lens capture banded colors, sharp peaks and valleys of the Badlands, then capture the mystery of Devils Tower’s granite columns towering into the sky.
