At a Glance

In isolated Adirondack communities, music and story-telling provided not only respite from work but a means of passing along traditions and values. Barn dances were entertainment, recreation and a way to connect with neighbors. Relive these traditions as you get your rhythm on in an Adirondack music workshop at Great Camp Sagamore. Develop your talents and abilities, discover those you didn’t even know you had, join in lots of shared activities and enjoy a grand finale group show where everyone is guaranteed a standing ovation!

Love to learn and explore in a small-group setting? These adventures offer small, personal experiences with groups of 10 to 24 participants.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Receive expert instruction in a variety of instruments including guitar, lap dulcimer, banjo and others.
  • Learn how to write stories and songs, take voice lessons with tips on how to present them and perform alongside your fellow participants. (Performing is optional!)
  • Enjoy the blossoms of spring or the beautiful fall foliage at an iconic “great camp” in the heart of the Adirondacks.

General Notes

The Retreat Difference: This unique, often basic and no-frills experience at a Road Scholar Retreat includes opportunities for early morning exercise, interaction with the local community for insight into local life, an authentic farm-to-table or locally sourced meal, a live performance or event, and a value-priced single room. Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

This was my third trip to the fall program and I very much want to go again at least one more time. The location is secure, safe and beautiful. The accommodations are comfortable and pleasant, the meals good. The instructors are amazing- knowledgable, warm, interesting for us and interested in us. It's just a fantastic experience and I've come home every time fulfilled and very happy. Let the title be your guide.

This was my first experience with the Road Scholar organization. The program was everything described and more. A chance to unplug from the craziness of the world, learn something new and meet new friends with similar interests. Will definitely look to Road Scholar for future adventures.
