Bridge levels and topics vary by date. The standard program is designed for intermediate players who have mastered basic bridge concepts and scoring and are excited to move to the next level. Appropriate for social, party and tournament players. Two program dates per year are for advancing players and one program date in 2025 is for beginner bridge players. 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.
