Middle School Field Trips


Each station listed is either 30 minutes or 45 minutes long depending on your field trip length. Please choose 4 stations when planning your trip. Lunch can be added to the middle of your field trip, which will substitute for one of your stations. You can also choose to eat on-site after your field trip or off-site, which will not add additional time to your program. Contact the Program Coordinator at (910) 938-5079 or programming@sturgeoncity.org with questions.

Cost: $5 per student and parent chaperones

(Teachers and school staff are free)
