About the program

Join us for a dynamic week as we explore the treasures of Mackinac Island. Legend and fact will emerge as you study the island's glorious history, geology, natural beauty, architecture and modern life. Discover old-world traditions as you learn about the island's early economic and military importance as well as its development as a Victorian resort. Customs and cultures will come alive through lectures and field trips with local residents and area experts.

A field trip to Fort Mackinac, a carriage ride around the island, and afternoon tea at the historic Grand Hotel will enhance your visit. Hilly terrain is physically demanding with considerable walking and hiking (approximately 1-2 miles per day). Sturdy, comfortable shoes are recommended. Activity level: Active.
