Field Trips & Family Outings


Field trips are a fantastic way to build excitement and school spirit. And learning or helping pick where the class is headed is always at the top of students’ back-to-school lists.


Learning outside the classroom is a key component of a great education that gives excited students the chance to jump into new experiences and to do hands-on activities. It also gives kids the opportunity to ask professionals questions about their work—maybe in science, technology, performing arts, nature or maybe in some other career field. They also can ask what kind of education and background is helpful for landing such a job.


Wondering what fun and exciting field trips are available nearby or a short driving distance away? Boomer Bear has done the research for you, beginning on this page. The guide lists places that are fun, entertaining and educational for classrooms and for families with homeschoolers.
