Getting out and exploring the world around them is the ultimate opportunity for our campers to make new discoveries. Two days each week are devoted to exploring new places, enjoying new experiences and finding new interests. The trips are designed to be fun and experiential while reinforcing many of the lessons they are learning in camp.

Transportation: The journey is the destination. This famous saying is brought to life as our campers learn to navigate public transportation as part of their field trip experience. The goal is to make them more confident and independent so they can continue to explore the world long after they’ve left our camp.
