Educational Partnership Program
The Knoebel family has long recognized the major impact our local schools have on the vitality of our community. It is because of this understanding, and the recognition of the other countless contributions of our schools, that we developed a deep commitment to education.
In accordance with the factors mentioned above, we have established the “Knoebels Educational Partnership” program. This program allows us to partner with local schools in encouraging the strides students are making in their educational journey, as well as assist schools with certain programming.
Make your lesson plans jump off the page by introducing your students to a 50-acre outdoor classroom. We’ve created comprehensive lesson plan ideas based off the PA state standards for education to reduce the workload and increase the fun. History, geometry, physics and art are just a few of the subjects your students can explore at Knoebels. Then, end the day with a Knoebels-catered school picnic in one of our pavilions!
Knoebels is committed to cultivating our youth, and we have many attractions throughout the park that are educationally based, fun and FREE! We offer guided and self-guided tours of these wonderful attractions. Learn about the rich coal mining heritage of Pennsylvania with a tour of our Anthracite Mine Museum, or take lessons from our staff engineers about the nuts and bolts behind your favorite rides.
“Students learn by experience, and this is one experience they'll never forget.” Jen S., Teacher
Knoebels school picnics are a great way to start or end your day at Knoebels. Our experienced group sales staff work with your needs and budget to tailor a catered event your students will remember for years to come!
Schools within a 25-mile radius of our park are eligible to participate in our “Spring into Action” Program. Vouchers are provided to schools based on a percentage of enrollment and are to be used as an incentive that supports the school-wide behavioral expectations in grades Pre-K through 5. Eligible students will receive a voucher good for one $5 book of individual ride tickets valid (April 15th – June 30th 2015).
