Check-in available from 2:00-5:00 p.m.
Program Registration. When you arrive at Hidden Valley’s campus, come over to the main office next to the parking lot to register with the program staff and get your welcome packet containing the up-to-date schedule that reflects any changes, other important information, and to confirm the time and location of the Orientation session. If you arrive late, please ask for your packet when you check in. At 5:00 p.m., we’ll meet our fellow participants for a wine and cheese reception in the Fireside Room. We’ll enjoy some California wines and/or juices and savor cheese and crackers before dinner.
Like all meals at Hidden Valley, dinner will be a buffet in the Dining Room. Dinners will feature selections from the "salad bowl of the universe," as well as tastefully prepared entrees. All baked goods are also prepared on campus. Included beverages are coffee, tea, water, juices, and California wines.
Orientation. The Group Leader will greet everyone, review the up-to-date program schedule and any changes, discuss roles and responsibilities, logistics, safety guidelines, emergency procedures, and answer any questions you may have. Introduction of participants is done as part of Orientation. This is a Road Scholar Retreats program. Our programming at Retreat locations includes opportunities for light morning exercise, interaction with members of the local community, a farm-to-table or locally sourced meal, and evening entertainment. This is a Road Scholar FLEX program. It offers a more flexible schedule than our traditional programs with ample time for personal independent exploration and meals on your own to enjoy the cuisine of your choice. The Group Leader will be happy to offer suggestions. All meals at Hidden Valley will be dining room buffets.
