Rangers in the Classroom
The Valley Forge 2012/2013 Rangers in the Classroom Season:
Introduce your students to the wonders of their neighborhood national park and entice them to visit Valley Forge with their families. Park rangers teach in your classroom about the military campaign in 1777-78 when the British and Americans maneuvered and battled for control of Philadelphia, and Washington's army encamped at Valley Forge to reorganize and transform into a mature army. This program highlights the importance of Valley Forge National Historical Park in our nation's history.
This program is available to schools within a 30-mile radius of Valley Forge Park. Classes may not be combined. Multiple class sessions are available on the same day at the same school, up to a maximum of 4 class sessions per day.
Programs are reserved on a first come, first served basis. Applications must be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to your requested program date and will be considered based on dates and ranger availability. Decisions will be made within one week after the submission of the application. You will receive a completed form with the reserved date and time as your confirmation.
