We offer educational opportunities for children of all ages. Our programs tend to be hands on to facilitate learning through experience rather than lecture. The following is a list of program offerings:
Program cost is $5 per student. Maple Sugaring and Prehistoric Native American Studies can accommodate up to 60 students. All other programs have a maximum capacity of 30 students. These programs can be combined to accommodate larger groups. A frequent example is the pairing of Compass with Map and Grid. When this occurs, each class will have the opportunity to participate in both programs. The cost for such a combination remains $5 per student. The student to instructor ratio in the above situations is 30:1. For a more worthwhile experience for everyone we recommend bringing 1 class at a time, this reduces the student to instructor ratio to 15:1 which allows for a more in-depth program.

Thank you and we hope to see you in the parks!
