Weekend Warrior Programs 

Not everyone has the time, resources, or interest in the in-depth, multiday programming that BGES so proudly presents throughout the year. As such, the BGES Weekend Warrior programs are condensed but robust programs that typically start on a Friday evening with one or two lectures for an academic foundation, followed by two full days on-site, wrapping up on Sunday about 4 PM.

The BGES selects robust themes with minimal amenities and stays focused on the traditional interpretation of the offered event. Prices are held to a minimum with the intent of conducting tours for as few as five people, while not losing money on the presentation. Try one and you will come to a second and a third—it is an exciting concept that gives you the most bang for the buck.
