ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Capture Nature in Michigan Thru Watercolors
Enjoy watercolor painting with a well-known, local artist and instructor. Daily watercolor demonstrations and open painting sessions with individualized assistance. Separate instruction for beginners and more experienced. Basic supplies provided. The watercolor artist will teach how to use reference photographs for use in your watercolor painting. Some sessions outdoors (weather permitting).

Explore Forest Ecology Thru Hiking and Photography
Interpretive hikes will help participants understand the seasonal changes of local flora and fauna. Learn how to take good quality photographs with a professional photographer, as well as editing tricks and techniques and how to use the various functions of your camera to get the most of your photographs.

Tai Chi Chuan: An Ancient Art of Wellness
The emphasis of these Tai Ji sessions are less concerned with form and formality and instead is one that allows for "a dance of inward expression”.
