Here’s how it works- Step One: book your program with Old Fort Niagara and receive your confirmation. Step Two: apply to the New York State Connect Kids to Parks Program to cover your bus costs. Follow the instructions on the Connect Kids webpage. Do this as soon as possible after you book with Old Fort Niagara; grants from the Connect Kids Program are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
When you arrive at the fort, you will indicate the number of students in your party. One free adult will be admitted per ten students. Extra adults must purchase admission. The fort will invoice the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area directly for your admission fees.
