Teachers! Are you considering a field trip to Fort Stanwix for your students? Now is the time to call before our spring dates are completely filled. We have a limited number of openings for ranger-guided programs April-June.

If you are teaching summer school, we also provide guided programs throughout July and August. We also have an array of daily activities during those months, and welcome self-guided groups, too. Please call ahead so we know to expect you.

Fall at Fort Stanwix is also a wonderful time to bring your students. We are open until December 31, and provide most of our regular school programs until that date. This is also a great time to assure that you are able to make reservation date and time you want, as visitation slows down at this time of year.

We offer 1-hour ranger-guided programs from Pre-K through college, based on your emphasis, at 9:15, 10:30, 1:15, and any time from 2:30-4:00 p.m. Also, for grades 4-6 we offer 3-hour Soldier's Day Program from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

If you would like to reserve a program, or you would like more information, please call the fort at 336-2090 and ask for Valerie Morgan or Bill Sawyer. Detailed lesson plans and additional program information is included on our website, www.nps.gov/fost.
