School students will get a first-hand look at Pennsylvania Amish culture on a class trip to the Amish Village in Lancaster County.
Visiting the Amish Village is a great way for school students to learn about a culture that has remained relatively unchanged in nearly 300 years. Our staff will help you plan the details of your field trip and make sure your kids get the most out of their educational experience.
We can accommodate multiple busloads of students, and you’ll find our staff easy to work with. They will be happy to tailor a class trip to fit the needs of any group of students. Just contact our office and we can help plan your trip to the Amish Village.
Student tours and class trips start out with a 25-minute guided tour of our authentic Amish Farmhouse, where a local tour guide will explain the history, culture and religious traditions of the Amish in Pennsylvania. While our student tours are geared to the entire K-12 age range, our guides can easily tailor the tour for either younger or older students.
At the conclusion of the Amish house tour, your local guide will escort the students as they explore the rest of our property. During this time, students can ask questions about the Amish lifestyle today while they explore our 12-acre Village Grounds. During your visit, you’ll always have someone on hand to answer questions and enrich the students’ Amish experience.
