Field Trips

Field Trip Update (8/4/2018)

We are excited to be your new Field Trip Coordinators and are busily working on the Field Trip schedule for the 2018 - 2019 school year. We plan to bring back some favorite trips and introduce some new ones. Our goal is to set up some trips for older kids, some for younger, and some for the whole family. We are planning some that require travel and some 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. There will also be an opportunity later this fall to pre-purchase tickets to the popular Capitol Kids program at the Capitol Theatre – 5 shows this year! Lastly, 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.
