Field Trips

Learning Far Afield From the Classroom

Many Stone Soup parents work and commute long hours and may not have the time to take their children to the variety of cultural and recreational facilities that California offers.  During the summer, the Stone Soup children are taken on educational field trips which are mixed with outings to parks and playgrounds for a change of scenery and new adventures.
Some of the exciting field trips for summers are:

Los Angeles Zoo Griffith Park
Discovery Science Center Huntington Library and Gardens
Cabrillo Aquarium Farmers Market
WOW Museum California Science Center
Heritage Park Childrens Discovery Museum
Monterey Zoo Tech Museum
California State Northridge Children’s theater Water Day – Swimming
Knotts Berry Farm Ice Skating
Aquarium of the Pacific
Monterey Bay Aquarium The Farm
Monterey Bowling Lanes El Estero Park
Medieval Times Gilroy Gardens

Numerous picnics, parties, barbeques, park days and walking field trips in addition to the bus trips keep the children active and eager to learn in different surroundings.

UCLA Campus

For a number of years the UCLA chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma invited Stone Soup to visit the UCLA campus. The sorority sisters made it possible for Stone Soupers to learn from the UCLA cheerleading squad, members of the volleyball team and get a taste of life as a college student.  The events culminated with a mock graduation ceremony.  Everyone came home a winner.

Through a fund-raising drive the Kappas also contributed to the Stone Soup Reading is Fundamental program.
