Incredible and wonderful trip that I would highly recommend for everyone! The Grand Tetons are magnificent as is the area that surrounds Jackson Hole, Wyoming. However, the best part of the trip were the people that we met and enjoyed for seven days. Working along side the Teton Science School, we were divided into groups. My husband and I were so fortunate to be chosen for the Wolf Pack! Our companions in this group were wonderful and so much fun to be with. We never stop laughing ! Each group had a group leader and we had an incredible young woman named Kelsey. She was the best and brought this beautiful place to life for us! Everyone with Road Scholar was gracious and helpful! Everyday was something different! We hiked mountains, canoe lakes and floated down the Snake River! My most memorable moment however was staring into the eyes of the most beautiful red fox that I had ever seen. It was magical! If you love adventure, love to laugh and being outdoors, this trip is a must!


This was an outstanding experience and trip. I will look for other programs that follow this model!


Our Grand Tetons adventure and activities were exceptional. The Teton Science Center Brent over backwards to enjoy our experience on all levels. Oh, and the food was excellent. I like fixing my own lunch!


The trip to the Grand Tetons fulfilled a life long dream and exceeded my expectations. Great fun, new friends, satisfying learning, awesome landscapes - an experience that let me know that I'm still strong, still curious, and ready to go, go, go.


Wonderful trip, wonderful staff, wonderful everything. My confidence in my outdoor abilities was greatly enhanced thanks to our leaders and others in the group. Jayne Fuglister, Wausau, WI


This was our first Road Scholar trip. It was well-organized, all the details were in place so all we had to do was show up for each day's activities. The Tetons have been on my Bucket List a long-time and this was a perfect way to experience them physically and philosophically.


We decided to try a Road Scholar program rather late in our lives. I wish we had started sooner! We will still try to do as many as we are able.


This was my first Road Scholar trip and I loved every minute! The level of all we did was exceptional. Hiking, rafting, canoeing in such a beautiful place was fun and inspiring. The Teton Science School and Road Scholar staff were knowledgeable, helpful, and all-around fun!! I cannot wait for another adventure!


If you enjoyed camp as a kid, then you will enjoy this. Food was good, activities were plentiful, only mildly strenuous. Included participants from all over the country. Enjoyed making new friends and hope to see them more in the future.


Great program content, I don't know how you could otherwise do so much in one week in a place with so much to offer.


I encourage anyone who loves nature and outdoor activities to try this program.


The program for the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone run out of the Teton Science School was excellent. All of the physical activities were accommodating to all levels and abilities. The group leader from the TSS was excellent in enhancing enjoyment and organizing the activities. The food was very good. The lectures were very good and informative.


This program had an excellent variety of activities and experiences to give a taste of the Jackson Hole area. It was well organized and the size of our field group was perfect. The staff at Teton Science Schools was friendly and knowledgeable. I was glad there were some options concerning the level of physical activity provided.


Just back from an amazing program at Teton Science School in Jackson Hole. No picture or film can prepare you for the beauty of the Grand Tetons. Whether canoeing, rafting, or hiking, a spectacular view of the mountains is around the next bend. The young adults who are the outdoor educators for the program are enthusiastic and passionate about the area and eager to share their knowledge with Road Scholars.


The Great Outdoor Get-Together in the Tetons and Yellowstone Program is excellent for anyone who want an active and educational week in the beauty in two of fantastic national parks and monuments.


Visiting the Teton Science School will change you. Nature will surround you and give you a big hug. In return, you will want to take better care of her, wherever you live. Looking at the mountains will touch your soul.

Outstanding week in a gorgeous location. Great opportunity to experience fun outdoor activities as well as learn about history, geology, and dynamics of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. I called it my week at "camp" and would go again in a heartbeat. Accommodations and staff were stellar at TSS.


This must one of the most organized, delightful, beautiful trips I have ever taken; and I have traveled extensively.


My first Road Scholar program. I had only a general and modest commitment to the subject matter and found the material both engaging and thoroughly enjoyable. I was able to participate to my comfort level without a problem.


The Tetons and the geysers and pools of Yellowstone Park were absolutely beautiful. The hikes were good and personally challenging for me. The TSS was accommodating for all of us. Their meals were good and filling. It was nice to be without a TV for a week.


This trip was he most fulfilling I have taken. The outdoor activities were incredible!!!


Grand Teton & Yellowstone was a wonderful experience, great staff, small group of 12 with experienced leader & excellent food. Highly recommended. Bill Carlson


Outstanding first trip with Road Scholar. Although staying in town was an option, so very glad that we chose to stay on Teton Science School campus. Amazing leaders, experiences, learning. Would recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys being outdoors and active. RS, the bar is set high for next trip!


Another great Road Scholar trip. Can't wit for our next one.
