Field Trips & Camps
The Stewardship Program offers day camps and field trips for schools, scouts and youth groups. Day camps are a less expensive alternative to residential camps. Day camps may be two or three days in duration. Campers arrive each day between 9 and 10 am and depart between 2 and 4 pm. We work with groups to accommodate their transportation schedule. Sites include the Fresno County Sportsman’s Club, Lost Lake Park, and the San Joaquin River Parkway. (Day Camps are not scheduled on Saturday, Sunday, Monday).
Field trips can be planned for a small or large group, a single class or an entire grade level. Trips normally begin between 9-10 am and end between 2-4 pm. We work with groups to accommodate their transportation schedule. Sites include the Fresno County Sportsman’s Club, Lost Lake Park, and the San Joaquin River Parkway.
The Stewardship Program has credentialed teachers and experienced natural
resource docents on staff to guide learning experiences. Camps
and field trips involve a wide variety of interactive classes designed
to challenge participants to explore nature and discover that science
has real life applications. Kayaking, canoeing and leadership programs
may also be incorporated into activities. For schools, all activities
address California Academic Content Standards.
The cost for Stewardship Program field trips is reasonable. Depending on activities selected, staff requested and sites, field trip and day camp costs average $5.00 to $20.00 per day for each participant. There is no charge for chaperones. We work with groups to design programs that can fit their budget.
