COVID-19: Interchangeable Virtual & In-person Field Trips

Due to the unprecedented and evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our field trip programs are being offered as both virtual and in-person experiences. We understand how unpredictable planning may be during this time, so we will accept any transfers between physical and virtual experiences as your situation changes. Once you reserve a field trip, we will be more than happy to convert your reservation between in-person and virtual, as needed. For complete details and information, please check out our Student Group Guide
