What is it?

Happy Spring! Join us for Trippin Out, an exciting program designed especially for 6th and 7th graders. This year’s Trippin Out program will take place on some Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons. On each trip, there will be a short homework time and students will have the opportunity to purchase a light snack. Homework may be done in a variety of places such as parks, restaurants, libraries and more. Our day will continue with a trip to second destination and/or students will take part in a special activity. Trips will include bookstores, community centers, local college campuses, grocery stores, and much more! This will be an interactive program, where the children will explore their own interests around the Brookline community and offer suggestions for future trips.

Goals of the program are to:

Encourage independence

Contribute to the community

Introduce children to new places in the area

Explore extracurricular interests

Create a safe and interesting program for older children

Become responsible citizens of the community

How to Sign Up

There will be six trips per Trippin Out session. Your child will have the opportunity to sign up for TWO of the six trip offerings per session. There will be a maximum of six students per trip and a minimum of four students per trip. If there are less than four students on any given day, the trip will be cancelled. All trips are on a first come first serve basis. Please be sure your child can commit to each trip they are signed up for in order to avoid cancellation of trips.

For planning purpose, please sign up your child no later than Tuesday, March 26th.


There is no cost for the Trippin Out program. Students will have the opportunity to purchase a light snack while on trips. Please provide your child with NO MORE than $5.00 for each trip to purchase a snack. If a student has more, they will only be able to spend $5.00. HEDP will cover the cost of bus and/or T fares and activity cost.

A follow up permission slip will be sent out to those who sign up for trips by Tuesday, March 26th.
