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.
In the historic town of St. Charles, Missouri – where the Louis and Clark expedition began – learn about the area’s rich and fascinating history as you explore Civil War-era forts, parishes, courthouses and homes. Delve into the life of Mark Twain as you visit the Mark Twain Museum, take a cruise on a classic riverboat and learn from Mark Twain experts. Gain a deeper understanding of the Lewis and Clark expedition as expert historians tell their tale in the historic fort they embarked from. Finally, learn about Civil War history from inside a series of historically significant buildings, like the home of Ulysses S. Grant.



Highlights

• Step into the shoes of Mark Twain as you study in his hometown of Hannibal, visit his boyhood home, learn about his lifestyle and come to understand his passion for the Mississippi.
• Learn about the Louisiana Purchase and westward expansion at the historic Camp Dubois, the final embarkation point for the Lewis and Clark expedition.
• Live out Civil War history as you become the judge and jury of the Dred Scott case in the Old Courthouse where it took place.

Activity Notes

Some stairs and walking 1-2 miles daily.

Coordinated by St. Charles Community College.
