KCSC Road Trippers

KCSC announces a new opportunity for older adults who want to travel and make new friends. The KCSC Road Trippers will offer day trips and regional travel experiences designed with lifelong learners in mind — those who want to learn about our destinations and experience new adventures in a group setting.

KCSC will offer a variety of trip lengths and pricing so you can find one that fits your calendar and unique interests. In 2023, we will visit the Pella, IA Tulip Festival on May 4, 2023 and Atchison, KS, the birthplace of Amelia Earhart, home to the St Benedict’s Abbey and the Forest of Friendship on October 12, 2023.

We will keep our prices very reasonable, making our adventures a great option for budget-minded older adults. The first experience to Pella, IA will be $100 per person and include snacks for the am and pm rides, transportation and a KCSC Road Tripper’s T-shirt. See below for more details!

This new opportunity brought to you from KC Shepherd’s Center is being sponsored by Centerwell Primary Care in 2023.
