    Default Field Trips

    I'm really interested in Field Trips that others have been on or thought of... in Kansas.
    So far we have Exploration Place, and The Zoo both in Wichita that we scheduled for this year.

    Hello! We just moved to Kansas and home school our oldest son. He is 11 and we would be very interested in any field trips or other get togehters in the area. We are in Holyrood near Ellsworth and Great Bend. We are in a good location for traveling almost any place. We often go to the Wichita area and also Salina and even Topeka. My direct email address is [email protected] if anyone wants to email me directly or I can just keep checking back on here. Thank you
