Program #21490RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
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 10 - 16 years of age.

Hang ten and blast off! Discover the wonders and hidden treasures of Florida’s beautiful Space Coast as you learn about America’s space program at the amazing Kennedy Space Center. Get into the environment, learn about the challenges of wildlife conservation in our era of climate change, and top it off with surf lessons where the instructors will have you up on a board before you know it!


Highlights

• Explore the Kennedy Space Center, ride the “shuttle experience” designed by astronauts and have lunch with an Astronaut.
• Take an airboat ride on the St. Johns River, and work in teams using a seine net to catch fish, plants and invertebrates in the Indian River Lagoon.
• Get surfing lessons from one of Florida’s best surfing schools.
