Camp Flintlock's online programs are powered by Thinkific, an online education platform that arranges programs into "courses." When you register for an Online Field Trip, you are enrolled in a "course" that includes:

-A link to download and print the Activities Packet

-A checklist of items to have ready for your Field Trip

-The Field Trip Video

-An optional survey requesting your feedback on our new program

Once Camp Flintlock has received payment, you will be granted access to this "course" for one week (there is an option to schedule this access window in advance). In that time, you may view the Field Trip Video as many times as you choose. See below for more information.

How does a Digital-Only Field Trip go?

Registration

Register through the Online Store for a quick and easy registration experience and immediate access to your Field Trip.

OR 

Register via our online Registration Form to schedule your Field Trip more than 6 days in advance. (This registration method also allows for payment by check.)

An account is automatically created for you, and login information is sent via email within 2 business days (this is instantaneous with Store registration). You will use this account to access the Digital-Only Field Trip.

For Schools/Organizations: Camp Flintlock does not recommend sharing login information with students.


Field Trip Access

For most Field Trips, access to the Field Trip "course" is granted immediately once payment has been processed.

If you have selected a later Field Trip date on your Registration Form, access to the Field Trip "course" will be granted 3 days prior to that date. This allows time to print up the Activity Packet and make sure you know how to share the Field Trip via your organization's virtual learning platform, if necessary.

Once granted, access is valid for 7 days.


Print the Activity Packet

Please Note: It is permissible for up to 3 of a participants' family members to print their own copies of the Activity Packet and join in on the Field Trip. In fact, Camp Flintlock encourages at least one family member to do so, as having a partner to work with and play against greatly enhances the experience.

The Activity Packet is a digital document participants must download and print prior to their Field Trip. You may view the Field Trip Video without it, but you will not be able to participate in all the activities.

The Activity Packet includes:

-A list of items needed. Digital-Only Field Trips don't involve any shipping/distribution of physical products, but there are a few common household items needed for this Field Trip that can't be provided digitally.

-A Field Trip Handbook containing coloring pages and questions about the material learned.

-A coloring sheet that is folded into a fan during the course of the Field Trip. Please note: Participants may want to color these in advance.

-Recipes for an authentic colonial meal.

For Schools/Organizations: The Coordinator may download the Activity Packet his/herself from the Field Trip "course" and email it to participants.


Share the Field Trip Video

Virtual learning platforms and other group video chat programs typically feature screen- and audio-sharing functions. If you are unable to locate these functions on your virtual learning platform, please contact the platform creator. Camp Flintlock is unable to provide technical support for outside platforms.

For Schools/Organizations: Depending on the virtual learning platform, large groups may need to break up into classes of 25-30 participants to view their Field Trip. In this case, the Coordinator may give the "course" login information to teachers so that they may view it separately with their classes. Any number of people may access this account at the same time.

Please Note: No payment or billing information is attached to Thinkific accounts, but Camp Flintlock still strongly discourages teachers from sharing this login information with students.

Digital-Only Field Trip FAQs

  • I want to schedule my Field Trip in advance.

    Digital-Only Field Trip orders made through the Camp Flintlock Store are fulfilled immediately and Field Trip access is valid for 7 days. If you would like to plan your Field Trip more than 6 days in advance, Camp Flintlock recommends ordering your Field Trip using the Field Trip Registration Form (above). Using this form rather than the online store also allows for non-electronic payment methods.

  • My Organization cannot pay electronically

    Some schools and other organizations do not authorize the use of a credit card/PayPal to purchase online field trips. If this is the case for your Organization, simply complete the Field Trip Registration Form (above) and remit payment via your preferred method. (Orders will not be filled until payment is received.)

  • My child's school is doing a Digital-Only Field Trip. Can I or my other children join in?

    Camp Flintlock encourages up to 3 of a participants family members to print up their own Activity Packets and join in on the fun at no additional charge! Having a partner to play with during the Digital-Only Field Trip greatly enhances the experience.

  • How can I distribute the Activity Packet to participants?

    The link to download the Activity Packet is part of the Field Trip "course." Camp Flintlock does not recommend giving your login info to participants so that they may download the packet themselves. Once your access window begins, you may download the Activity Packet and send it to participants via email, etc.

  • How long will I have access to my Field Trip Video?

    Video access is valid for seven (7) days. The access window begins immediately with online store orders, or three (3) days before your desired Field Trip Date if you sign up using the Field Trip Registration Form.

  • How do I share the Field Trip Video with other participants?

    Camp Flintlock does not recommend sharing your login info. Most virtual learning and video chat platforms feature screen- and audio-sharing functions that will allow you to share the Field Trip Video with other participants. If you are unsure how to do this on your virtual learning platform, please contact the platform creator. Camp Flintlock is not equipped to offer technical support on third-party platforms.

  • Some of my participants missed the Field Trip/need more time to finish. Can I share my login information so they can finish on their own time?

    While no payment information is saved in your Field Trip Account--and while the option to share your login information is entirely up to your discretion--Camp Flintlock recommends a second showing of the Field Trip Video through your virtual learning platform.

  • No hablo inglés.
