In order to provide the best possible program for each school group, schools will work with the Discovery Program Director to create a customized schedule. Considerations such as length of stay, student needs, classroom instructional blocks and evening activities are evaluated to create an ideal experience so every school can meet their goals. Trips can range from one day with four hours of instruction to a multi-day trip with several hours of instruction each day. Course options may be combined to meet the groups interests, capabilities, and needs. Browse a list of available courses or take a quick look at these sample schedules to grasp what a typical discovery school schedule looks like.
frequently asked questions
Can we add extra programming the day we arrive?
Our typical school trip starts at lunch the day you arrive and ends at lunch they day you depart. If you want to arrive early and have a full activity period that morning, we can accommodate that with a small additional charge. If you want to stay later on the day you depart and have a full activity period that afternoon, we can also accommodate that with a small additional charge. Please contact the Discovery Program Director to talk about any additional activities.
Do you make ACCOMMODATIONS for food allergies or special diets?
We will do our very best to accommodate any food allergies or special diets. However in extreme cases, we recommend the student bringing their own food. Please contact the Discovery Program Director to discuss how we can best accommodate any food allergies or special diets.
