Your Next Adventure Awaits!

Looking for a fun, educational trip for your 3rd-5th grade classroom, daycare or small group? Then you’ve got to check out our field trips! We offer a variety of field trips for ages 4-10 years. From outdoor excursions, to learning about  wildlife – your next adventure is closer than you think.

Field trips can be customized to fit the needs of your daycare, class or scout troop. We’ve seen some groups utilize our field trips as a supplement to their curriculum or as an end-of-school-year celebration.
