Chaperones are an important part of the field trip and will be able to engage in the activities and help support the museum staff by interacting with the exhibits, participating in the activities and helping children who may need to use the facilities. Chaperones will be able to help the students have a safe, focused, fun experience that they will remember for years.

No siblings will be accommodated. Chaperone Guide for Open Field Trips will be included with field trip confirmation.
