Road Scholar
Program #5220RJ
8 Days | 7 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.
Celebrate the beauty, wisdom and humor of the Appalachian culture and other folk cultures amid the mountains and creeks of West Virginia. Choose afternoon classes that interest you most from options including traditional mountain square dancing, flat footing, and other styles of dance; Appalachian folklore and musical history; and songs and ballads. Attend the Augusta Festival, part of a summer-long celebration of Appalachian and ethnic folk music, dance, crafts and folklore at Augusta Heritage Center.


Highlights

• Enjoy folk concerts and jam sessions, waltz to live music on an open-air porch and meet and chat with “old master” musicians.
• At the Augusta Festival, find a juried craft show, dancing, demonstrations and performances.
• A special Road Scholar banquet is served in historic Halliehurst Hall, a 55-room mansion built in the 1890s by Sen. Stephen B. Elkins.

Activity Notes

Walking short uphill distances with hilly campus terrain; prolonged standing, stairs.
