Home School Days

Home School Day
Thursday, October 13th, 2016

Home School students are invited to join us this fall for our program, National Park Service: 100 Years of Keeping Our Heritage Alive. Using a combination of quality education practices and standards, students will learn about soldier life, Washington, and the bio-diversity in our park. Participants will be broken up into specific groups based on age. For the duration of the event, we ask there be at least one parent or guardian per seven children.

  • 3-5 years: Washington and His Horses
  • 6-8 years: Adopt a Tree
  • 9-11 years: Join the Continental Army
  • 12-15 years: Weather and Valley Forge

There will also be an all-ages break-out session at Muhlenberg Brigade Huts highlighting the history, culture, and bio-diversity of the park.

  • Then and Now
  • Spies of the American Revolution
  • Birds of Valley Forge
  • Native and Invasive Species of Valley Forge
  • 18th Century Weaponry
  • 18th Century Aristocracy
Sign-in for the first session begins at 9:30 am and the program concludes 12:30 pm. Sign-in for the second session begins at 1:00 pm and the programming concludes at 4:30 pm. Please arrive at the theater building by the Visitor Center at least fifteen minutes prior to your session time for check-in and to pick up your booklet. We recommend that you dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes. This program is designed for Home School Students only.

To prevent overcrowding on the day of the event, we ask that charter, virtual, and/or traditional schools register for our other ranger-led education programs during the academic year, October-May, rather than register for Home School Day.
