OLD SANTEE

CANAL PARK

PROGRAMS

Educational programs at the park deal with the wide range of historical events that took place on or around Stony Landing Plantation, such as children's life, archeology and canal history. Environmental programs emphasize the vast diversity of plant and animal life found throughout the park. Topics include insects, reptiles, trees and wetlands.

 

All programs meet the state curriculum standards, and all but a handful can be taken from the park to the classroom. Cost is $2 per student for two programs. Additional programs are $2 each. Maximum class size is 30, including students and chaperones. An ideal chaperone ratio is 1:8 with a maximum of four adults per class. Extra adults will be charged $2. Classes with fewer than 15 students will be charged a flat fee of $30. Students should wear name tags and be dressed appropriately for activity and weather.

 

All programs are available to travel to South Carolina schools, with the exception of "Child's Life" and "Stony Landing House". All programs are $2 per child/per program with a minimum of 25 students. Programs are approximately one (1) hour.  Classes appropriate for all grade levels.
