Teachers, school administrators, and homeschool parents, if you are looking for a fun and engaging way to teach about life in the American colonies, you've come to the right place! With a range of in-person and online educational programs and a focus on the contributions of a variety of people to the American culture, Camp Flintlock has the colonial experience that is right for you and your students!
The information on this page applies to educators and large groups. If you are a parent looking for an Online Field Trip for your own children, or would like to volunteer at your child's School Field Trip, please see the Parents page.
See our Programs page for descriptions of our various Field Trip programs and to sign up. For a more detailed explanation of your role in a Camp Flintlock Field Trip, see below.
Who is the Field Trip Coordinator?
The Field Trip Coordinator is our contact person within your organization for scheduling your event, discussing any changes, and disseminating field trip information. If you sign your organization up for any of our Field Trips, please know that we will consider you to be the Field Trip Coordinator.
Camp Flintlock is not currently equipped to handle phone calls and correspondence from more than one person per organization, so the Field Trip Coordinator will also handle inquiries from teachers and parents regarding details of the event. As Coordinator, please feel free to contact us with any inquiries, but please do not direct other teachers and parents to do so.
In the case of an on-campus field trip, the Coordinator is responsible for ensuring that Camp Flintlock staff have access to the field trip location (making sure gates are unlocked, etc).
In the case of a online Field Trip, the Coordinator is responsible for distributing Field Trip materials to students/teachers.
For our Original Field Trip, which is conducted in-person at our campsite or your location, Camp Flintlock recommends scheduling at least 3 months before your desired Field Trip date (some Organizations book as much as a year in advance).
For most online Field Trips, Camp Flintlock recommends registering at least 3 weeks in advance.
Before registering, please see the Programs page for brief descriptions of our various Field Trips, or use the links below to explore each of our Field Trip programs in greater detail:
A link to our Online Registration Form can be found on each of the above pages. You may register for any of our Field Trip programs using this form, but also have the option to register for Online Field Trips through our Online Store.
If you plan to attend an Original Camp Flintlock Field Trip with your class (see Programs for details), you will most likely be doing so as a Class Leader. A Class Leader stays with their particular class throughout the event, leading students from one activity to another. This is different from a Parent (or Teacher) Volunteer who stays at one station and teaches the same activity to each group as they come through.
If your organization is doing an Online Field Trip, the method of showing the Field Trip Video--as well as your duties as a Class Leader--may vary:
-For Virtual-Learning Field Trips, you may be asked by the Field Trip Coordinator to assist in distributing Field Trip Kits to your students. The Field Trip Video may be accessed using the login information you should receive from the Field Trip Coordinator and may be shared via your virtual learning platform. Please do not share this login information with participants.
-For In-Class Field Trips, in which field trip materials are shipped in bulk & include 3 pop quiz prizes per class, you will need to oversee the distribution of field trip materials for your class. The Field Trip Video can be accessed using the login information you should receive from your Coordinator, and is best displayed on a classroom TV. Please do not share this login information with participants.
-For Digital-Only Field Trips (which feature a printable Activities Packet) you may only need to send your students an email with field trip details. Again, the Field Trips Video may be accessed using the login information you should receive from your Coordinator and may be shared via your virtual learning platform. Please do not share this login information with participants.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your organization's Field Trip Coordinator (see "Who is the Field Trip Coordinator", above).
