Plan A Field Trip
Fort Sumter National Monument is comprised of two main sites: Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor and Fort Moultrie on Sullivan's Island. The sites are administered together by the National Park Service; but because a boat is needed to reach Fort Sumter, there are different requirements for scheduling school group visits to each site.
Please choose the site you wish to visit for more information on how to schedule a field trip for your school group:
