Program #14915RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
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.

Take your grandchild to enjoy a beautiful bayside retreat center and all kinds of animal adventures led by experts. Enjoy skits performed by the grandchildren, go beach-combing together, swim, feed the zoo animals, learn about coastal critters and nocturnal animals, and look for the 100-plus kinds of birds.


Highlights

• Learn the basics of caring for horses and ride along wooded trails.
• On an alligator farm field trip, see and touch baby gators, learn about conserving nuisance alligators, and look for some of the 150-plus adult gators onsite.
• Explore “The Little Zoo That Could” (seen on Animal Planet), home to more than 290 animals including lions, tigers, bears, monkeys and macaws, with a special demonstration by the zookeeper.

Activity Notes

Walking during field trips up to two miles per day.

Coordinated by University of South Alabama.
