Field Trips

A Field Trip involves the following


Registration Process

  1. Review the online information about Field Trips, watch the 5-minute Field Trip Video, and browse the Field Trip Gallery.
  2. Download the Companion Sheet and complete the online registration form.
    • There is an $800 minimum for a Field Trip. Small groups may combine with other groups and/or sign up for add-ons to meet the minimum.
    • The number of activities is dependent upon the number of classes. For groups that do not have classes per se, please divide your participants into groups of 25-30.
    • The base number of activities are as follows:
      • -Five (5) activities for groups of 5 or fewer classes
        -Six (6) activities for groups of 6 classes
        -Seven (7) activities for groups of 7 classes
        -For groups of eight or more classes, please contact Camp Flintlock
    • Out of these activities, three (3) are automatically selected by Camp Flintlock:
      • 1) Colonial Store & Dress Up
        2) American Indian or (NEW!) West African Necklace Making
        3) Colonial Games
    • The remaining activities are yours to select.
    • For a small fee, groups of six or fewer classes have the option to select additional activities, up to the seven activity maximum. This is a good way for smaller groups to reach the $800 minimum.
    • Camp Flintlock can conduct up to 7 activities during one school day. Therefore, if you have 8 or more classes/groups, the Field Trip will require more than one day to complete.
  3. Submit the form.
    • If the event is at your school:
      1. Secure permission for CF staff to spend the night in tents to ensure the security of our equipment. This requires reserving the field or location where we set up for the evening before the field trip in order to avoid conflicts with sports or other extracurricular activities.
    • Contact Camp Flintlock and discuss the available dates.
    • We are not able to indefinitely hold dates if we do not have a signed registration form on file. Many schools book a year in advance, so submit the form as soon as possible!
  4. Camp Flintlock will send you e-mail confirmation and a teacher information packet.
