About Powell Gardens’ Guided Youth Programs
Powell Gardens offers a variety of themed program options for youth in grades K-5, perfect for school or scout groups.
Each guided program is 90 minutes and incorporates field journals, nature investigations, science skills, and nature games. These standards-based school programs are designed to supplement science content covered in the classroom with fun and engaging learning activities. Once the program is finished, spend the day touring the other garden areas and nature trail. Ample space is available for each group to enjoy lunch after their program.
Guided programs must be reserved at least two weeks in advance of the desired date and are scheduled weekdays between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. These programs require a group minimum of 10 students and a maximum of 60 students per time slot. Teachers receive free admission. A maximum of 10 chaperones are allowed on each field trip.
*An adult to student ratio of at least 1:10 is mandatory but no more than one adult for every five students is permitted. Exceptions apply. Member discounts and benefits cannot be applied to field trip admission.
