Penn Dutch

Gain an appreciation for a different lifestyle while on your school trips by scheduling one of eduStars student tours to Penn Dutch. The Amish Colony of Lancaster County, PA, is America’s oldest Amish settlement, where thousands still live a very plain lifestyle as the Amish have done for centuries.  Arriving in Dutch country allows your students to step back in time to enjoy a slower, more peaceful pace – one where the horse and buggy remains a primary form of transportation and agriculture and crafts are some of the main industries. This class trip gives your students an appreciation for today’s comfort that is a normal part of their everyday life. Once you’ve experienced an Amish restaurant and toured the countryside and village of these extraordinary people, allow your trip to take a tasty turn. Make sure that your student tours itinerary includes a trip to Hersheypark where the legendary chocolate bar is still produced. Afterwards, take a tour of Kitchen Kettle Village to experience the cooking of fresh salsa, jams, jellies, and bread. No matter which options your student trips to Penn Dutch include, your students will enjoy every second of it.
