All Homegroups take a field trip once a week. Trips take place on Fridays.
We take air-conditioned, chartered buses to age-appropriate locations for activities that are educational and lots of fun. Our priority is to take trips that give campers the opportunity to be in a natural setting or a museum worth exploring as a group. In order to maintain a very safe adult to camper ratio, Specialists accompany home groups as additional adults on field trips. For Sixes on trips we maintain a 1 to 4, to 1 to 5 counselor to camper relationship. For this reason, we do not ask for parents or caregivers to accompany groups on trips.
