Schedule your program in a snap! Here’s how:
1. Begin by narrowing down the dates that work best for your classroom schedule (The Park is open for field trips Monday-Friday). We require at least a two week notice to ensure 4MHP staff availability.
2. Select a Program Option (Wagon Wheels only available in the last two weeks of April and all of May)
3. For our Four Mile Sampler program, choose activities to take you on your journey through the American West.
4. Submit a Field Trip Request form or call 720-865-0814

For on-site programs, we require a 1:10 ratio of adults to students; these adults, as well as any providing one-on-one support to a student with disabilities, are free. Any additional chaperones will be charged the same amount as the students.
