City Kids goes on a field trip in the D.C. metro area once every week. Most of our field trips correspond to our World Cultures & Geography activities; they reinforce what our kids are learning and also provide new and exciting venues for the kids to explore and have free play. Our trips include museums, gardens, farms, cultural institutes, theatre, local businesses, and much more. Families rotate planning field trips, and they either guide the trips themselves or arrange for a structured field trip with an outside guide. Using the city as our classroom provides our kids with a unique perspective on what learning can be.
Covid-19 Update: Because many venues might be unsafe to visit (or even closed), most of our field trips will be outside in non-heavily trafficked areas. How often we will go on field trips this year is still to be decided. All participants will be required to wear masks and stay at least six feet apart.
