Grab Expeditions

Our experiences are about appreciating the location, the people, your Gettysburg experience, and about learning what you are able to accomplish. Our programs may be on trails and the sea, but the emphasis is learning, not mileage, and we aim for inclusiveness. These trips accommodate a wide range of physical abilities, vary in intensity from trekking between 4 star inns in Tuscany to remote camping in the Alaskan Wilderness, and have included participants from the class of '74 to current graduates. Please check or call to see which of our expeditions are right for you.
