At Shelburne Farms, your students will be engaged in inquiry-based, experiential learning designed to deepen their connections to place and each other while fostering their natural curiosity. We work with you to connect the learning experience to your curricular goals as well as national standards and the Big Ideas of Sustainability.
Most of the pre-designed listings below can be adapted for grades K-8 unless otherwise indicated. We also offer customized experiences to explore a specific standard, topic, or theme not covered elsewhere; as well as outreach experiences at your school or community. Trips are listed by season.
