Mount Rainier education programs are offered for school and youth groups Mondays through Fridays. These curriculum-based programs typically take place in the southwest corner of the park, from the Nisqually Entrance to Paradise (map of park).Programs must be scheduled at least one month in advance. In most cases we can accommodate group sizes up to 60 (including students and chaperons). Minimum group size is 15 participants. Please inform us if any of your students have special needs. Our priority is to provide a safe and positive experience for all students and we will do what we can to accommodate students with special needs.
