We work closely with Next Generation Science Standards and your curriculum to provide a fun educational experience for your students. Read our brochure here.
Starting in September 2019, our fee is $5/student/program for our Science & Nature Outings. We are thankful to the foundations, companies and individual donors that support our programs and help keep the cost of the programs to less than half of what it costs to deliver them.
If you select just one program (usually 1.5 hours), it is $5/student. If you desire a longer field experience, you can sign up for two programs, for a total of $10/student. (See Field Trip Examples in our brochure.) There is no fee for teachers, and one chaperone for every eight students is free.
Our Travelling Naturalist programs are $100 for the first classroom (max. 30 students), and an extra $40 fee for each additional classroom presentation, with a maximum of four presentations in a day ($220). For schools that are more than 30 miles from Severson Dells, we charge $0.54/mile.
Area school teachers and students frequently use the our facilities and equipment for field trips to supplement classroom studies. There is no fee for self-guided trips.
