COME TO THE FOREBAY AQUATIC CENTER FOR YOUR NEXT FIELD TRIP! 

Spring and Fall offer amazing opportunities for aquatic and land based education.  

Using core standards, STEM and Project WET/WILD we will customize a class field trip for grades 4th -12th.  

Options for K-3 can be discussed. Field trips include water safety, introduction to five types of watercraft: Kayaks, Stand Up Paddle Boards, Peddle Bikes and Canoes. Hands-on activities will get students excited about science, nature and the aquatic world of wonder.  We will facilitate and provide teachers and students with an outlet for hands-on learning. We will help inspire, encourage and increase interest with a sense of adventure while investigating science and our natural world in the perfect outdoor classroom.
