Shenandoah National Park offers a variety of field trip opportunities. Planning ahead and preparing your group will help make the park visit a memorable, fun, and safe learning experience for you and your students. The first step is determining what type of field trip experience you would like for your students at Shenandoah National Park.
Ranger-led programs are science curriculum-based, two hour programs for groups of up to 60 students. Prior registration is required and space is limited each season.
Self-guided programs are pre-established curriculum-based programs that are generally focused on science or social studies. Prior registration is only required if you need materials from the Education Office.
Create your own experience
The Education Office can provide local school groups and academic institutions with an academic fee waiver for visits that are for educational or scientific purpose. This fee waiver allows full access to the park. This option allows the largest breadth of experiences for your students. If you need any assistance in planning the experience, please contact the education office.
