Classroom at Crater Lake is the field trip that students want. Participating teachers love how students engage with their natural surroundings, learn important science concepts, interact with park rangers, exercise, and make great memories. Our field trips are free of cost, hands-on, and aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards.
