Willowbrook offers a multi-station interactive program that addresses Maine Learning Results and New Hampshire Curriculum Framework. On-site programs are based on grade-appropriate themes in a “station” format. Each program is about 3 1/2 hours in length and includes time for lunch and a stop at the Student Shop.
Our programs may be modified for other grade levels--just ask.
Students travel through the village from station to station (above) and print a handbill on a Kelsey Excelsior printing press to take home.
For reasons of safety and security, student groups of 10 or more must be accompanied by a Willowbrook tour guide. The program fee is $5 per person - students and chaperones alike. One educator is admitted free with each class or youth group. The $5 fee represents a substantial discount for adult chaperones.
