Field Trips

Field trips are only open to High Country Support Group member families. All event registrations are completed online. If there is a fee for the field trip, you will be asked to provide payment information (credit or debit card) at the end of the online registration process. If you do not complete the payment portion of registration, you will not be confirmed to attend the field trip. All payment information is confidential. You will receive an email payment receipt once you have completed the process.

All field trips are non-refundable.  In situations of family emergencies or sickness, a monetary refund may be possible, but is not guaranteed. Please contact the Field Trip Coordinator immediately for cancellations at The final decision will be made at the discretion of the Field Trip Coordinator.

Cancellations and Waiting Lists
We may have a waitlist for a particular event. If an event is full, you can email the Field Trip Coordinator at to be added to the list. If you are registered for an event and think you may need to cancel, please notify the Field Trip Coordinator as soon as possible in order to accommodate those on the waitlist.

Reservation Deadlines
Deadlines are in place to assist the site in preparing for our group. Reservations are considered "closed" on the deadline date. However, if the field trip reaches the maximum number of attendees prior to the posted deadline, registration may be closed early. If the trip is full or closed, you may be placed on a waiting list in the event another family should cancel (see above).

Inclement Weather
If a field trip is cancelled due to hazardous weather conditions, you will be notified as soon as possible by e-mail and/or by phone.
