Program #1471RJ
7 Days | 6 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.
Become immersed in the history and heritage of Appalachia and the unique Shaker community at two of Kentucky's most distinctive institutions. In Berea — a town founded in 1855 on the ideals of equality — learn about the people of this region and their communities. Journey to Shaker Village — a National Historic Landmark— to gain an appreciation for the Shakers and learn about their worship, industries, joyful music, and crafts.


Highlights

• Experience the power and joy of Appalachian music, literature, and traditional crafts.
• Learn about Berea College's historic connection with the people.
• Consider the role of the Shakers as America’s first “pharmacists,” and learn how they developed their knowledge of medicinal and culinary herbs.

Walking up to two miles on uneven terrain. Historic buildings with stairs, no elevator.
