School is almost out, and that means summer camps, daycares, and church groups will soon be looking for fun Charleston field trips for kids. Here are a few summer field trip ideas for your summer camp or daycare:
- Visit the South Carolina Aquarium – A trip to the aquarium is not just fun, it’s also educational! The South Carolina Aquarium hosts hundreds of animals including sharks, an albino alligator, and even a bald eagle.
- Go to a Museum – Speaking of fun and educational, consider taking the kids to visit a museum. The Child’s Museum of the Lowcountry has lots of wonderful interactive exhibits and the Gibbes Museum of Art is a wonderful way to help foster a love of art.
- Hit the Water – No Charleston summer field trip list is complete without a mention of hitting the water. Consider an exciting boat ride or even an ecology tour to learn more about our Charleston waterways and the animals that live there.
- Come to Charleston Fun Park – A visit to our Charleston amusement park is the perfect summer field trip. Our wide range of attractions include something for everyone, making us a great outing for both younger and older children. We also have lots of stuff to do both indoors and outdoors, so kids can get some outside time while also having a place to retreat to if the summer weather gets a little too hot.
