School Program Policies and Pricing 

Program Policies

  • All programs have an outdoor component and run drizzle or shine. Should your program need to be cancelled due to heavy rains, high winds, snow, etc., we will do our best to reschedule.

  • We are unable to reserve rain dates.

  • Woodcock does not have a water fountain or supply bottled water. Students should bring their own water bottles which can be refilled.

  • Please no drink boxes (clear straw wrappers can be harmful to our wildlife).

  • Trash removal is your responsibility. Please bring a trash bag for your garbage and take it with you when you leave.



Important Information for Teachers and Parents

  • Attire: Students and chaperones should dress for the weather with appropriate footwear (closed-toed) for walking on trails. Layers are recommended to regulate temperature.

  • Insect Repellent: It is recommended that clothing and shoes be sprayed with an insect/tick repellent before arriving. We advise a tick check when students go home.

  • Teachers and Chaperones: Are expected to monitor student behavior during the visit. This includes modeling appropriate behavior such as staying on the trail, staying with the group, and not using personal cell phones during a program.
