Kids and Youth in the Parks

National Parks provide opportunities for kids and youth to grow and connect with natural, cultural, historical, and recreational resources in their own way. New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park, in collaboration with park partners, offers a range of youth programming that develops leadership skills. The park provides opportunities that help kids and youth participate in the maritime and cultural heritages that New Bedford Whaling National Park seeks to share with all its visitors.

Below you will see some of the opportunities for your kids and youth to engage and develop knowledge of the park’s history and culture.
