Our field trips enhance the curriculum and are a dynamic part of the learning process. They present a real opportunity to experience new activities and to discover the local environment and community.
Each class enjoys frequent field trips throughout the academic year. Our students travel to museums, attend theater performances, explore art galleries, and visit local points of interest such as the firehouse, parks, and neighborhood businesses.
Students are offered the opportunity to go on overnight field trips. These field trips not only let students explore the world around them, they also teach independence and problem-solving.
Our students look forward to Lyceum Kennedy’s signature field trips:
- Nature’s Classroom. In May, our second- through fifth-grade classes travel to Connecticut or Long Island for a few days of environmental education.
- Hunter Mountain Adventure. In March, our middle and upper school students head to Hunter Mountain for four days of skiing and winter sports.
- Maritime Aquarium Experience. First graders make an overnight trip to an aquarium.
Although we encourage students to participate in these learning opportunities, these trips are optional and require an extra fee.
