Bring the Park to Your School
Can't afford a field trip or fit it into your schedule? Have us come to you! Park staff are available to come to your class to give programs related to your field of study. Park staff are only available when scheduling permits, and can only travel within a short radius of the park (Appomattox, Amherst, Bedford, Campbell, Charlotte, Cumberland, Prince Edward, Pittsylvania Counties, and Lynchburg). Please call Education Coordinator Brandon Chamberlain preferably by e-mail or at 434-352-8987 ext. 231 to arrange for a visit. Park staff can discuss a variety of topics related to American History. When possible, staff may come in Civil War uniform and bring reproduction clothing, equipment, and weapons (check with your school policy first).
