Class Field Trips

Flamingo Gardens Education Department offers a variety of field trips for students, summer campers and other groups. Our programs grow right along with the over 28,000 children who visit us each year. We offer a unique opportunity for students to observe and learn about trees, plants, birds, native wildlife and nature using a hands-on approach in our beautiful South Florida environment. It is our mission to foster curiosity, appreciation and a respect for nature in children, while they have fun discovering the world around them.


CLASS FIELD TRIP RATES
Rates are based on a minimum of 15 students per group and range at $7-10 per student dependng on the program.  If your group is 15 or less you will still be responsible for payment of 15 students per group. One adult chaperone admitted free for every 10 paid students. Additional chaperones are $12.50 each. 
Prices subject to change without notice, until contract is signed.
