Each year the park receives requests from various colleges to see if some of their students might be able to spend their spring breaks at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park! These alternative spring break programs are gaining momentum across the country. Harpers Ferry NHP has hosted students from Boston University, Canisius College, and Northeastern University. If interested in participating, please contact Samantha Zurbuch, park Volunteer Program Coordinator (contact info below).
