Field trips spiral the calendar,

 and are one-of-a-kind,

off-the-beaten track adventures.


Typically a $10 per family donation

is requested as a donation

by the trip leader.

While families remain the central focus,

everyone is welcome on all adventures at any time.


We have lots of grandparents, nannies,

The emails are fun and educational —

they give you the bigger picture,

while the field trips bring big ideas

Lots of people are inspired to follow along

with their own adventures,

at their own pace,

and on their own time.
