Blacksmithing requires long periods of standing and use of upper body strength during class. Minimal walking in workshop; high temperatures by the forge. Periods in the daily schedule designated as “Free time” and “At leisure” offer opportunities to do what you like and make your experience even more meaningful and memorable according to your personal preferences. The Group Leader will be happy to offer suggestions. Program activities, schedules, personnel, and indicated distances or times may change due to local circumstances/conditions. In the event of changes, we will alert you as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding. Continue getting to know your fellow Road Scholar’s, settle in, and get a good night’s rest for the full day ahead.
