Overnight Field Trips
At Desert Shadows we support the importance of hands-on field trips and promote participation by all students. With that overnight trips are held annually for all students in grades 3rd through 6th grade.
Third graders travel to the Phoenix Zoo to learn all about the animals there. They then get to sleep the night at the zoo!
Fourth grade students hit the road for rafting down the Colorado River and a visit to the Grand Canyon.
In Fifth grade, we venture to AstroCamp in California. Here, students do various STEAM-related activities and evening programs.
Sixth graders load into buses, and travel to California where they focus on a STEAM based field trip. Last year they went to San Diego!
