Your Yorkshire Dales – Learn, Love, Explore
We can offer primary, secondary and special schools, practical and engaging learning experiences that meet the requirements of the National Curriculum; as well as enabling children and young people to develop an informed and inquisitive relationship with the countryside. Currently our offer is free to schools.
Primary, secondary and special school classes can join us for a full or half day of learning, with the Yorkshire Dales as their classroom. We offer curriculum-based geography and science fieldwork, farm visits, creative arts sessions, interpretive walks, outdoor survival (navigation/bushcraft) and practical opportunities to get involved in conservation and countryside management.
Lessons from the National Park
Our Education Officer and Park Rangers can deliver face-to-face lessons at your school or virtual lessons on topics related to the National Park, such as the background to National Parks, climate change in the Yorkshire Dales, countryside management, the countryside code and the impact of tourism.
Education activities at the Dales Countryside Museum
The Dales Countryside Museum is an important facility for everyone who wants to learn more about the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Interactive workshops can be booked on a variety of cultural history topics.
