^Sounds like a great deal especially if you're relatively new.

If it's just you or just another person I would stay local and use the money saved towards gear if you really get into it. Now if there's a bunch of you making a VT trip then I say go for it. Are you the only one trying to learn? For me, there was a like 4 of us trying to learn to ride back in the day which made it more fun for me. Although the time it finally 'clicked' I was alone on a green making turns by myself.

I also would try doing weekdays since it wouldn't be as crowded. No added pressure, maybe a smaller group in the lesson so you can get more hands on teachinig.

You really don't need VT to learn though. Even the tiniest hills would be fine just to learn once you get some lessons under your belt. Going several days in a row would be the best bet. It's all about practice and finding the groove in the beginning.

Have fun!
