Field trips are usually scheduled on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. In order for your child to participate in field trips, please check the schedule and plan in advance; some trips have limited seating, so the first ones to pay for the trip are more likely to get a spot. We will collect field trip money with the weekly due on Mondays. Field trips are attended and supervised by summer program staff in addition to the trip-site staff. Field trips for the entire week should be paid for on Mondays. Please prepare your child for the field trips that require swimwear. Trips to Venetian Pool, Crandon Park and other water related trips require a towel, sunscreen and bathing suit. A water related trip will state “Bring Swimwear” on the monthly calendar.
Movie trips are designed so that Juniors see “G” rated movies, and the Seniors see a PG-13 movie. If your child desires to see a PG-13 movie and is under-age, we will not permit this unless a release is signed and in file, where the parent authorizes their child to see the PG-13 movie. This release is contained on the registration form. One (3) T-shirt is issued to each child. Additional shirts can be purchased for $10.00 each. It is mandatory that children attending field trips wear their camp T-shirt. This ensures quick, positive identification of children belonging to the M.S.A camp group. Field trips are optional. You may choose and pay only for the trips your child is to attend. Staff members will stay behind to supervise children not attending trips.
