Elderhostel, a non-profit educational organization, offers inexpensive, short term academic programs hosted by educational institutions around the world. You'll live on college and university campuses, in marine biology field stations and environmental study centers and enjoy the cultural and recreational resources that go with them. Some of our educational institutions that do not have residential facilities or whose residence halls are not available will use modest commercial sites for their programs.
