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. Come join us for a fun-filled field trip day here at Deerassic! And if your group can’t make it out to the park, we’ll come to you!

PROGRAMS/ACTIVITIES
Deerassic Park Field Trips can be geared towards ALL AGES and get kids excited and engaged in the outdoors!

Teachers and Administrators can check out the grade specific listing of activities offered and their correlating Academic Content Standards. We are proud to work with your school/group to provide hands-on learning opportunities. Don’t see exactly what you’re looking for within our pre-existing 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!

ACTIVITY LIST

TYPICAL SCHEDULE
A field trip day generally runs approx. 3-6 hours and consists of 4-6 programs with a break for lunch (depending on your arrival/departure time). You decide how long you want to be here and our staff will let you know how many activities we can fit into that schedule.

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 normally $5 per student with exceptions for smaller groups. Chaperones and teachers are free! We also offer transportation grants to schools and youth groups to help with the cost of bussing — please see our Grant Opportunities for more information.

LUNCH
Students may eat inside the Education Complex or outside under one of our pavilions (depending on the activities/schedule.) 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 the planned 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.

IN-CLASS VISITS
If for whatever reason your group/school can’t make it out to the Park or you want to continue the experience throughout the entire school year, Deerassic will come to you!

We offer a full list of activities adapted to be brought into YOUR classroom! Don’t let the learning stop with your field trip day and bring Deerassic to your school today!
