Program #18555RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
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.

Program intended for grandchildren from 10 - 12 years of age.

Explore the forests and waterways of the Northwoods with your grandchild as you master outdoor skills on a memorable adventure. Learn to canoe into aquatic ecosystems, hike into the vast forested landscape, build a fire, and orient yourself with a map and compass. Study the world of raptors, create a “dream catcher,” make a leaf-printed t-shirt, view an awesome waterfall and much more.



Highlights

• Make new friends as you work together completing a challenge course, testing your strength as a lumberjack, making plaster casts of animal tracks, honing your archery accuracy and enjoy fishing a local area lake.
• Explore a northern quaking bog — an experience many equate to walking on a giant waterbed — and learn about the special plants and animals that reside in it.
• Experience a canoe trip on the Manitowish River, a shallow watercourse where you can see the river bottom in most places.

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles over uneven terrain. Canoing up to three miles.

Coordinated by Trees For Tomorrow.
