We are thrilled to announce the Carowinds' spring educational programming is back in 2022. We look forward to welcoming educators and students back for fun and educational field trips. For any questions, concerns, or additional needs, please contact

When you participate in youth programs or student field trips at Carowinds, the park becomes your own interactive, state-of-the-art classroom (and the ultimate playground for after class). We have worked with leading educators and subject-matter experts to offer the best in content and impact for student learning at all grades and levels. We make learning FUN.

Carowinds' 2022 Spring Education Days programming, STEAMQuest: Learning in High Gear!, provides in-park student activities that coincide with a state-approved curriculum. Fun and affordable packages are available to thrill your entire group!

Do your students have talent? Showcase it at one of our performance opportunities, Festival of Music or Performance in the Park. Students can take center stage at our unique performing venues in front of an audience of park guests.

Additionally, educators can make mealtime a breeze by selecting options from Carowinds' all-inclusive catering services.
