A lot of research was involved in providing a unique experience. Although there are a lot of planned (more being added) activities, we were sure to leave you with plenty of time to do things that may be on your own to-do list if you wish.
Classes are scheduled for one day, in consideration of any friends or spouses who may not be interested in the classes. In some cases, arrangements can be made for you to take a longer class.
