Cuyahoga Critters
Suggested Grade Level: Preschool – 3rd
Through the use of American Indian storytelling and props your group will learn all about the animals that call Cuyahoga Valley National Park home. Groups will peer out the windows of the train to search for the animals as they scurry through the park. The program is designed to inspire a sense of wonder and to help your students heighten their discovery skills while interacting with the physical environment.

Canal Camp
Suggested Grade Level: 2nd and up
Children have always found a way to have fun. Your group will participate in old and new camp activities like games, songs and stories and travel to the Canal Exploration Center. Once there, they will participate in old time games that children of the canal era would have played. They will reboard the train after about an hour at the CEC and return to Peninsula. This program is designed to educate students on how and why The Canal Era changed the area, and how these waterways were the “highways” of the day.
