2019 - 2020 FIELD TRIPS AND EVENTS

While activities have slowed during the summer, we are still behind the scenes making plans for a fabulous year. Last year CHDH offered numerous field trips and special events, and we are hoping to do so again this fall and spring. To make that happen, we need your help.

We have created a document to centralize planning of field trips and events. Any member can add an event or claim one already listed as an option. Our hope is that with so many members (we have over 340 families), we can have a very active year with numerous opportunities for everyone.

When you click on the link below, you can do the following things:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1DYxh8EQLcQILQzmnZQO5k_B4bP151F1V8gAnO65ExSA/edit?usp=sharing

    1. Add a field trip/event you plan to coordinate or you would like someone else to coordinate
    1. Sign up to coordinate one or more of the field trips/events already listed.
  1. Add your contact information and brief notes beside the field trip(s)/event(s) you choose.

We do not have descriptions of every field trip, but many are included in this link:

You can copy what remains true and/or make adjustments to better describe what you have coordinated. Once you have settled on the details, you need to do two things:

    1. Send an email to the CHDH loop with all the details including when, where, costs, and how to register
  1. Copy the details into this document

So that we have all of the information gathered in one place. That way, when potential new members request information, we can refer them to our upcoming trips and events document.

That’s it. It is really quite simple. You just pick an activity, invite the community, register participants, and show up on the day of the event.

The activities listed are merely suggestions. There are endless possibilities, so don’t be shy. Feel free to add anything that interests you and your kid(s). All we ask is that once you claim a field trip, you plan it and advertise it to the loop. If you change your mind, no problem. Just go back into the sign-up sheet and delete your information so that another member can sign-up.

We know some people are more comfortable coordinating events than others. We are here for you. If you have any questions, we can try to point you in the right direction. Just let us know what you need.
