GOING PLACES
A Special Program for Older Children. Going Places field trips are decided during the first week of summer camp. We will update as trips are chosen. Here is out list of 2014 Going Places field trips.
(Incoming 4th Graders and Up)

Each Thursday this summer, we’ll offer special field trips for small groups of older kids.
Our Going Places trips are designed to teach older kids about public transportation and
responsible budgeting — we’ll get around on bike, on BART, and by foot. Participants will
be responsible for maintaining their bikes and budgeting their money to last throughout
the day (and not losing their BART tickets!).

Please plan to have your child arrive with all necessary equipment by meeting time at
9:00. We will return by 3:00.


PLEASE NOTE: THESE ARE OUR TRIPS FROM 2016. A LIST FOR 2017 WILL BE AVAILABLE AFTER OUR SUMMER PROGRAM BEGINS
