Local Trips and Tours   

 Each term we strive to offer trips and tours because Lifelong Learners love to experience new places! Some may be local tours, others may be exploring the uniqueness of towns and cities surrounding Spartanburg Country. Check back here often to see what is in the lineup each term. For our trips and tours, participants provide their transportation. We are sure to give you good directions and support. We always encourage carpooling from CUMC!  Please read the details of each trip carefully before registering. Cancellations will not be refunded one week before the trip or tour.

Having paddled on Lake Jocassee for years, they'll share some of their best-kept secrets with you! We use our pontoon boats to move from one remote and wild paddling location to another.
