School Field Trip Experiences
Second graders from every Chenango County public school district have the opportunity to become immersed in programs designed to enhance school curricula with hands-on activities. Interactive sessions feature pre-history, Native American culture, pioneer living and westward expansion, Victorian influences, the discovery of electricity and its impact, a lesson in the Ross Schoolhouse, the role of the Chenango Canal, and the influence of local agriculture including a tour of our Loomis Barn exhibits.
Field Trip Experiences are also customizable for other community education organizations, such as after-school enrichment programs, childcare centers, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and 4-H.
The program fee is customarily $4 per student. One responsible adult is required to participate for every 10 students, and there is no fee for chaperones. (Fees enable CCHS to continue offering School Field Trip Experiences.) Thanks to generous members of The Legacy, some financial assistance may be available to offset the program fee.
Reservations can be made year-round, and it is strongly encouraged that arrangements be made at least ten weeks in advance. (Please inquire about any special accommodations at time of scheduling.) For details on how to book Field Trip Experiences, call (607) 334-9227.
