SCHOOL FIELD TRIP REGISTRATION: There is a maximum of 50 individuals or one bus per time slot.

Special needs requests should be noted in the field "questions, comments, concerns" during the registration process. The Discover Drumthwacket field trip program is extremely popluar. Please be considerate and check (A) your school's field trip policy and obtain, if necessary, proper Board and/or PTO approval prior to your visit and (B) your school's standardized testing schedule (ie. PARCC, NJASK) to avoid conflicts and cancellations. Cancellations less than three months prior to the scheduled visit, for non-weather related reasons, may jeapordize the school's ability to register for future trips. Only public schools in Title One districts are eligible for bus tranportation reimbursement and complimetary lunches. To receive these benefits as a Title One public school, register using the invitation code emailed to districts. If you do not have this code, please email Serena Jain for assistance.

EASTER EGG HUNT FOR CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS: You must have an invitation code to register.

As the event fills quickly, please be considerate and register only immediate family members (parents, siblings) and/or caregivers in order to give as many children with special needs the opportunity to attend. Children ages 3+ must be registered individually as it is important for the Foundation to have an accurate participant count.
