The Callaway Education Department is ready to help you plan education programs such as field trips for scout groups, school associations, and daycare facilities. Our Education Team includes horticulturalists, naturalists, and other experts who are well-qualified to deliver an enriching program for your group.

Groups scheduled through the Education Department will be given priority over all non-scheduled groups in all facilities and guided programs. Student groups visiting Callaway are charged an Education Fee of $6.50 per student with one (1) free adult chaperone per eight (8) students.  Additional adults are $10 if included in the same payment with the student group fees.

Guided programs carry an additional fee. Some group programs also can be arranged at an off-site location of your choice.

School & Group programs must be arranged in advance and are dependent on staff availability. For more information about the programs available and to complete a program application, please download our Environmental Education Catalog.
