See our Small Group programs.
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.
Think about the power of laughter: It can break tension, build lasting friendships and make you feel better at any moment. Whether you chuckle, giggle or guffaw, learn a little more about what makes you laugh. Award-winning Road Scholar instructor Donna Ingham leads discussions on funny folklore, situational comedy and wringing the humor from stressful situations. Your week won’t be complete without a visit from Dennis Gaines, “the Biggest Liar in Texas” and a master of wild tall tales.


• Fitness abounds — of mind and body. Start the week with a course on nutrition and fitness activities such as water aerobics or sit-and-be-fit, and take in an evening of laughter yoga.
• Spend a fascinating afternoon experiencing the uniquely German heritage of Fredericksburg and a bustling historic district that is on the National Register of Historic Places in Texas.
• Erase those anxious moments when a word — or joke — won’t come to you by working with a professional comedian on techniques for improvisation.
