ABOUT
Deerassic Park Education Center is dedicated to providing high quality outdoor education experiences to youth to encourage them to be active in the outdoors and to nurture an appreciation for all the opportunities nature and the environment have to offer.

Teachers can check out the grade specific listing of classes offered and their correlating Academic Content Standards. We are proud to work with you to provide hands-on learning opportunities. Don’t see exactly what you’re looking for within our preexisting curriculum? We would be happy to work with you to develop programming to fit your individual needs. We are also available to travel with our lessons to your classroom or event!

WHAT TO EXPECT
A field trip day generally consists of 4-6 programs with a break for lunch (depending on your arrival/departure time). Our age/grade guidelines are suggestions; you know your students and their educational level best. We can also adapt most programs for any grade level or design a program to meet your needs. Call our Education Coordinator at 740-435-3335 or email luke@deerassic.com to discuss further options.

COST
The cost is $5/student. Minimum of 10 students per program. We offer transportation grants to schools and youth groups to help with the cost of busing — please see our transportation grant for more information.

LUNCH
Students may eat inside the main building or outside under one of our pavilions. You may bring sack lunches or plan to utilize our kitchen to cook your own meals. Please let us know your meal plan when making your reservation.

WEATHER CONTINGENCY
Every chance is given to utilize activity even in the event of somewhat uncooperative weather (misting, slight rain, etc.). However, in the event that the weather is completely uncooperative, we will continue scheduled programming indoors without rescheduling whenever possible.
