Plan A Field Trip - Spring 2013
Andersonville staff have developed a series of activities and on-site programs designed to help students understand the experiences of Union Prisoners of war held at the Camp Sumter military prison during the American Civil War.
The information on this page is accurate through the remainder of spring 2013. The other pages of this "For Teachers" section detail our new programs.
Ranger-led programs are only available for groups of less than 50 students. Presently we cannot accomodate large groups by splitting. For groups larger than 50, a variety of self-guided activities are available which allow you to get the most of your visit. Ranger-guided programs are one hour in length and can accomodate up to 50 students at a time. There should be one adult chaperone for every 10 students.
Registration at least two weeks in advance is required for all programs. Please allow at least a week for your field trip request to be processed. All ranger-guided programs are also subject to staff availability. All educational programs are free of charge.
All field trips are required to be reserved through the link below. Please fax registration forms to 229 924-1086. We do not accept phone reservation requests.
