Field Trips

Field Trip Update (04/23/2019)

We are having a great year so far, if you haven't joined us yet, please take a look at the schedule below and register for an upcoming trip. Our goal this year is to set up some trips for older kids, some for younger, and some for the whole family. Some trips require travel and others are located here in the Yakima Valley.

We will be visiting 10 college campuses this year and many schools will provide activities for your younger students while the older students receive admission info and a tour of the campus. in addition to attending Capitol Kids shows (sorry, the window is closed to purchase tickets) we will be organizing a trip to Olympia in March for the Homeschool Day at the Capitol. You won’t want to miss that.

Whether you have participated in CAPE Field Trips in the past or not, we hope you will consider including them in your school year. Field Trips offer opportunities for additional learning, writing assignments, occupational education, and a chance to get out of the house! See below for a complete list of field trips.
