Grandparent & Grandchild Wallops Island Trip!

Take your grandchildren on a scientific learning adventure

Analyze creek water, pull in a net full of wriggling creatures or examine the life in a drop of sea water, visit the picturesque Chincoteague and Assateague Islands, learn about local history and legends and experience firsthand the delicacy and beauty of these coastal environments. Road Scholar’s Wallops Island intergenerational vacations are designed for grandparents and their grandchildren (ages 9-15).

“If you are willing to get your feet wet and muddy, this is a spectacular program. Instructors really made the trip such a joy. Children and adults were kept busy every moment–children loved catching crabs and seeing the ponies.”

— Susan from Saddle River, NJ
