Grand Canyon National Park provides the perfect outdoor setting to enhance classroom-based learning.
Each spring and fall, the park's Environmental Education Branch offers 2.5-hour and 5-hour field trips for grades 3 through 12.
During the programs, park rangers guide students through Grand Canyon geology, ecology, and human history.
All field trips are curriculum-based and free of charge; most take place on the South Rim.
Programs are available Tuesday-Friday.
A limited number of travel grants are available for schools with restricted travel budgets. This offer applies to schools who are scheduled to attend one of our education programs with at least 40% of their students on a free or reduced lunch program.
Travel grants only cover a portion of transportation costs for schools and are dependent on fundraising.
This funding is made possible by the National Park Service, Grand Canyon Association and private donors. Grant money will typically be distributed the month of your field trip. Once you have successfully registered and received confirmation for your field trip, you may apply for a travel grant by completing a grant application form and returning it to our office by email.
