Plan a trip for summer 2013!

Registration is now open for summer 2013 field trips to the Academy!

If a trip to a science museum fits within your summer plans, submit the online application so we can process you on your preferred visit date.

You can bring a group of kids on either weekdays or weekends, except on or around holidays.

And remember, admission rates for both preK-12 school groups and those for youth-serving organizations such as summer camps, church groups, youth development programs, and sports clubs, are a healthy discount off general admission.

Note that to attend a show in the Planetarium, you need to reserve seats in advance, and children must be at least 7 years old. When you apply, you have the option to request seats in either the 10:30am or 3:30pm showing of the Planetarium show played to the general public. Show content is subject to change, so check the Master Events Calendar to confirm the shows expected to play on your visit date.

You’ll notice dates are still available through May 2013, if the school year works better for your group. Our newest additions include Earthquake and Human Odyssey, but we also have a new exhibit and a new 3D movie in the works. Rest assured there will be plenty to do on a field trip!

    Since your program serves kids under 18, you are eligible for our discounted youth group rates of $16.95 per person. Simply fill out the simple online application found here: http://www.calacademy.org/visit/youth_groups/
