A field trip to Astro Camp will be the highlight of the year for your students!
You don’t have to wait until summer to take advantage of what Astro Camp has to offer! Field trips are available for kindergarten-sixth grade. Choose classes from the Science Center, or experience a simulated space mission, where your students assume the roles of astronauts and mission control operatives! Reservations will be taken as long as there are openings, and then we’ll start a waiting list. Call today to schedule a field trip for your class!
Field trip costs range from $20-$100 per class, depending on the option you choose. Exact cost will be given when you register and choose the activity for your class.
Two classes from the same school may come on the same day. Each class will be charged separately for the field trip. Transportation to and from our facility must be arranged by the teacher.
OPTION ONE: SCIENCE CENTER
Choose one class from Group A. Your second class may be chosen from either list. Included in the Science Center is a visit from Super A, a super-genius scientist and distant cousin to The Professor.
This field trip is typically two hours for K-2, three hours for 3-6 grades. If your time goes beyond 12:00, arrange for sack lunches on the day of your field trip, and add 30 minutes for a lunch break.
