Professional Development

The C&O Canal National Historical Park is pleased to offer summer professional development opportunities for local teachers! Most opportunities include a stipend and/or bus funding to bring students on a Canal Classrooms Field Trip. If you are interested in exploring the C&O Canal, learning about curriculum resources available to your students, developing new curriculum programs in collaboration with park rangers, or helping deliver education programming to school groups visiting the park, we hope you'll consider applying. Professional development opportunities are updated each year with summer opportunities, please check back often and email us at cocanaleducation@nps.gov to apply!
