6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
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.
Join Rich Smoker, Ward Foundation World Champion, as he conducts a hands-on, decoy-carving seminar. Starting from a block of wood and using only hand tools, learn to carve, paint and finish your own bird. The class is geared to all skill levels and provides individualized instruction to every participant.


Highlights

• Enjoy and participate in lively discussions of both antique and contemporary decoys, with special emphasis on the legendary Ward Brothers of Crisfield.
