For Title I Schools
Are you a Title I School in need of field trip assistance? At Thanksgiving Point, we believe curriculum-related field trips provide a valuable learning experience for your students to bring learning to life. Each year at our annual fundraising dinner, many generous donors provide assistance to Title I schools by funding field trip scholarships.
With this support, Thanksgiving Point is offering field trip assistance to grades K-12 at all Title I schools and we are able to provide scholarships to applicant schools. Students of an entire grade level of each selected school will receive scholarships to attend a Thanksgiving Point field trip at one Thanksgiving Point venue for FREE.

After completing the online request form for your field trip, fill out the Field Trip Assistance Form below. We are excited about this opportunity for students to experience hands-on learning at Thanksgiving Point. We are also grateful to generous donors who made this scholarship program possible. Scholarship funds do not apply to transportation, movies or pony ride add-ons.
Please note: Scholarships are not awarded for any Middle School Career Exploration (CEE) Field Trips.
