Field Trip Factory

Those few, those happy few, who arrange trips for youth groups, church groups, or groups of any kind and age group, might be interested in The Field Trip Factory ( These are FREE trips, usually to stores, with information aimed at your specific audiences. Scout troups can complete requirements towards pet care badges at Petco stores. There are arts field trips to A. C. Moore stores, and so on. They are, of course, pointing out merchandise in their store, but there is actually a fair amount to be learned on these trips. I organized and chaperoned a field trip factory trip recently and was impressed at the educational versus retail information provided. You register on the website and then call a week in advance to confirm.

Just passing it on.
