Will field trips return to pre-COVID levels in 2022?

I’ve reached out to colleagues on both sides of the field trip aisle. On the provider side, there were museum administrators. They have expressed optimism that field trip numbers will return to pre-COVID levels in FY22.

But educators are not so sure -- about anything concerning field trips. They don’t know whether they’ll take classes to museums and parks, or if they do, they’ll return to pre-COVID levels. A class that used to take three field trips a year might only take one next year, choosing to supplement instead with the spate of virtual offers now in the pipeline.

All this is anecdotal and this is where I need your help. Regardless of which side of the equation you’re on, educator or administrator, I’d like to hear from you. Take two minutes to complete this survey. I’ll post the results soon.

And if you know of a methodical survey of educators on this question, send me a link and I’ll post it.
