Note on Structuring the day.

Booking Staff and establishing fees depends on days structure.

If our instructors are working with the same group all day, then the fee schedule to the right applies.

However, if you would like to include different classes consecutively throughout day, we can staff according to those group sizes. i.e. We can bring out 2 instructors to work with 2 or three classes of 30 through the day.

GOS fee structure reflects a living wage for our experienced and professional staff and great ratios.  We require a ratio of 15:1, students to instructor, to create field trip events that are effective, safe, and meaningful for kids, teachers, and our instructors.  All field trip events require a minimum of 2 instructors.

We are committed to offering our services to any and all schools, families, and organization who see value in what we do.  As such, if our costs are prohibitive to your group, please get in touch about sliding scale and funding options. 

This is a full day option running from 9am to 3pm.

1 to 30 students, 2 GOS staff.  $525

31 to 45 students, 3 GOS staff. $725

46 to 60 students.  4 GOS staff. $925

I have been on a ton of great field trips over the years, but I have to say, today’s trip probably tops them all! Amazing staff, programming, student attitude and engagement , plus the weather combined to make the entire day pretty perfect in my eyes from beginning to end! Thanks for the experience and please pass along my gratitude (again) to your team.
