For Teachers & Youth Leaders

Midway’s Education Department offers an exclusive discount on admission for school groups, home schools, youth groups, scout groups, summer and/or day camp programs, after-school programs, ROTC groups, college groups, and other youth groups with 10 or more students.

Reservations must be made for your group at least one week in advance. Groups must have 10+ student or youth participants, no exceptions, and a 1:10 chaperone-to-student ratio is required.
