Cayuga Nature Center – fifth grade(updated 4/17/17)
Arrival: Students arrive at Cayuga Nature Center by bus between 9:30-10:00 am. Upon arrival they are met by a ropes course facilitator and directed to gather their belongings and meet in the back yard.

Trip details: Once there, we do a general introduction where the kids meet the rest of the Nature Center staff and review the rules and expectations that were covered during the pre-visit that was done weeks prior. The teachers break the two classes of students into four groups of roughly ten students each. There is one facilitator with group. All 4 groups will do Team building games and initiatives led by CNC staff. At approximately 11:00 am all four groups meet back at the picnic tables for lunch. At 11:30 am we resume activities.
After lunch all 4 groups will go to the low ropes (obstacle course).

Departure: We typically wrap up this field trip at 1:00 pm and the teachers lead the kids back to the main building to board buses and depart from CNC by 1:15pm.
