Teachers & Youth Leaders
Three Rivers' parks offers educational destinations for school field trips, scout groups or homeschool students. Classroom concepts are reinforced through learning opportunities that teach children and teens to appreciate and respect their surroundings. Programs are available in the parks, at your school or other preferred location. Sites will work with you to achieve educational goals for students and scouts.
Three Rivers Park District is committed to making programs accessible. With advance notice, we can arrange for sign language interpreters and a wide variety of assisted technology (all-terrain wheel chairs, sound amplifiers, etc.). Financial assistance is available for qualifying groups.
Stay updated on programs designed for school groups, scouts, youth groups and homeschools through the Youth Leader Services newsletters.
