School Groups and Field Trips

Educational materials, including lesson plans and resources, are available to help plan your field trip.

All school groups are expected to have an adequate number of chaperones to accompany and supervise students. The preferred ratio is 1 chaperone for every 10 students. All students must be supervised by an adult chaperone, regardless of age.

An entrance fee must be paid for all chaperones and students ages 16 years and older who wish to enter the Historic Zone.

Groups from educational institutions that plan a trip to Fort McHenry for educational purposes may apply for an academic fee waiver. When approved, waiver grants free admission for some or all members of the group. See below for more information.
