Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
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.
With pristine coastlines and wildlife filled estuaries as your muse, explore the beauty of North Carolina’s barrier islands and learn the skills and techniques to better your digital photography. Expert workshops and hands-on demonstrations led by a photography instructor introduce all the options of your digital camera, as well as cover the basics of composition, presentation and digital manipulation. After learning your camera inside and out, take your knowledge into the field!


Highlights

• Test your skills during a photo shoot at Fort Macon, a Civil War fort on the National Register of Historic Places.
• Utilize natural lighting as you take photos of the live oaks that line the streets of historic Beaufort.
• At the beach and estuary, wildlife opportunities abound.
