The York County Department of Parks and Recreation offers a wide variety of educational opportunities. Most start at the 14,000 square foot Nature Center located within Nixon Park. Nestled on 213 acres, this park provides ample opportunities for teaching many of the earth sciences.

We invite you to explore our listing of educational opportunities for schools, scouts, and summer day camps for kids and more via the menu at left.
