Education Programs

Bring your students aboard the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad to experience the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in an exciting way!

Summer Programs
Student Explorers are educational based programs presented on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad in partnership with Cuyahoga Valley National Park. These hands-on programs correlate to the Ohio Academic Content Standards and are presented by Cuyahoga Valley National Park Rangers or Volunteers who have been trained by the Rangers.
Cuyahoga Critters
Grade Level: K – 3rd
Through the use of American Indian storytelling and props your group will learn about the animals that call CVNP home. Then we’ll peer out the windows of the train to search for the animals as they scurry from our train. This program inspires a wonder revelation of the natural beauty of CVNP. This program will help your students heighten their discovery skills while interacting with the physical environment. 
Canal Camp
Grade Level: any age
Students engage in canal era activities including interactive maps, games and explore why a growing nation needed canals. Meet people who lived or worked along the Ohio & Erie Canal, a diary entry by a teenage canal worker. The students will board the train at 11:45pm and return to Brecksville at 1:15pm.
