Great Kids Farm - 2021/2022 Field Trip Sign-Up
We are excited to expand options for students to visit the farm this year!
Free field trip options are now available for all Baltimore City Public Schools with students in kindergarten-5th grade. The maximum group size for each field trip is 72 students. If you would like to bring more than 72 students on your trip, there is space to indicate that below, and we will follow-up to discuss options. For fall 2021, we will limit each school to 1 trip.
New this year, trips will be organized by Learning Journey so that school staff can select the theme of their trip. All Learning Journeys will be linked to curricular topics at the relevant grade band.
Your trip date is not confirmed until you submit this form and receive a confirmation email from us. At that point, we will also share more details regarding logistics, permission slips, student rosters, and health and safety protocols.
