PLEASE NOTE: If our current offerings do not meet your needs, we hope that you will consider bringing your group for a self-guided field trip. We are not able to offer custom programs at this time. We are hard at work evaluating our current programs and developing new ones that align with the revised NC Standard Course of Study. Thank you for your patience as we improve what we offer to better support you for the 2024-25 school year.
