Program #21127RJ
4 Days | 3 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
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 9 - 12 years of age.

Creating crafts is a labor of love passed down through the generations. Share the experience with your grandchild in Berea, the famed arts-and-crafts capital of Kentucky. Local master craftspeople invite you into their studios for one-of-a-kind family experiences. Choose from a selection of different crafts and create three of your own hand-made treasures to take home. Throughout the week experience the warmth of Appalachian culture and the beauty of this corner of Kentucky’s Bluegrass region.


Highlights

• Led by master craftspeople, make a blown-glass ornament, a stained-glass ornament, jewelry or a basket.
• Learn how to utilize the tools, different mediums, safety and creativity to make your crafts.
• Activities for the whole family include traditional Appalachian storytelling and games and an ice cream social.


Activity Notes

Up to one hour of walking and standing.

Coordinated by Berea College.
