Planning a Field Trip
Our Education season runs from late March through first Sunday in November. If you are interested in bringing your class to the Oregon Caves for educational purposes, please download and read the Field Trip Packet (PDF 988 KB).
Fee waivers can be granted for other accredited educational groups (e.g. university classes, science clubs, education groups not accommodated during the education season, etc.). Please visit the Registration Materials page for more information or read more in the Field Trip Packet.
Preparing for Your Visit
Please download the following materials in order to be prepared for the field trip.
When You Arrive at Oregon Caves
The bus parking area is part of the public parking area (please refer to the parking map in your field trip packet). When you arrive, have your students remain on the bus. A park ranger will meet you in the parking lot and give a brief orientation to students and chaperones on the bus. They will then line up your group and lead them to the Visitor Center.
When You Depart from Oregon Caves
The field trip does not include time for visiting the gift shop. If your school has allotted extra time after the ranger activities are completed, your students may visit the gift shop. There must be at least one adult accompanying each group of four children. You may rotate additional groups of four children when the previous group has finished.
