Scheduling Information

Written by

For the current school year

For the next school year

Scheduling for the next school year begins March 1 and is on a first come first served basis. Notification of next year's schedule is sent out to all applicants in May. After May 1st, check the "Days Still Open" page for available dates and then call Roxie Sianez, 801-476-7877 or  to get your date(s) reserved. We are not taking reservations for any groups outside of the Weber School District at this time.  Check back in October to see if that changes.

What its all about

Field trips to the Center are all about helping kids have a powerful and fun learning experience. The Center is a place where students can be out in a mountain environment to see and feel the interactions there. It is a place where students can be challenged with fun and exciting activities they will remember for a lifetime. 
Field trips also aim to build teamwork and cooperation and to allow students to discover new things about themselves and their abilities.

To accomplish these objectives we must limit the number of people at the Center at one time.  Maximum group size target is 80 people.
