SUMMER FIELD TRIP CLUB
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Fort Washington, MD

When will I get the full details for the field trip?
I’ll be sending out a document full of the details you need about a week before the field trip. This also serves as a great reminder!

Can I bring younger/older siblings on the field trip? 
Every field trip is different when it comes to whether or not you can bring additional siblings. In the field trip description, I always have a section called “Younger siblings” and let you know what the situation is for that particular field trip. Siblings are not always permitted, please respect these guidelines and find a babysitter for your other children if you want to attend.

What does my field trip purchase include? 
On any given field trip, your purchase covers:

location admission fees
tour fees
donations to non-profits we visit
materials fees
room rental fees
instructor fees
and more
Thank you for joining us on our field trips; we really do appreciate it!

Have you gone on this field trip or taken this class before?
One reason we started the Field Trip Club was to help our family get out and explore new places, so no, we have not taken all of the field trips or classes that we offer. Oftentimes we set up a new field trip because we find something we want to do!

Although we have not necessarily gone to every location before setting up a field trip, we do try to thoroughly research a location beforehand and work with the venue’s staff to provide detailed information to you on what to expect.

I have a suggestion for a field trip… 
Awesome; I’d love to hear it! I am always on the lookout for new and exciting places to go. Please email me at caroline at fieldtripclub dot com to tell me more. Thanks!

BEHAVIOR, CANCELLATION, & PHOTOGRAPHY POLICIES

YOU ARE AGREEING to the following by registering to attend a field trip with the Field Trip Club:

Behavior Policy: We expect children to be interested and excited to learn while attending the field trip. Younger siblings are welcome, unless otherwise stated in the description of the field trip, some field trips require that you reserve a spot for them as well (due to fire code, Coast Guard regulations, etc.). We just ask that you be aware of the younger siblings’ behavior and if it is distracting, you remove the siblings from the area so that the field trip is not disrupted. If you think there will be a problem with this, please be proactive and find a babysitter for your child.

Cancellation Policy: Please check your calendar BEFORE registering for a field trip. With limited spots available, we want to ensure that every spot is filled by someone who can come the day of the field trip. We realize things come up unexpectedly, if you need to cancel, please email me asap or call me if it is the day of the trip (check the Field Trip Details for my number).

NO REFUNDS will be given, however, you may gift your spot to a friend as long as you let me know when you email me to cancel. My email is caroline at fieldtripclub dot com.
