In our 49er Fun School Field Trips 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders pretend to go back in time where they learn about California’s history by living and partaking in the everyday activities of the past.

Experiential learning through educational travel isn’t just a great way to study the past, it’s also a highly effective tool for teaching spiritual lessons at each of the different destinations a tour explores. On each student travel trip, our staff become characters from the past such as pioneers, gold miners, immigrants, or Native American Indians, and they will weave the joy and love of God’s living Word into every activity, including having fun along the way!

Living history educational travel field trips

We offer exciting experiential learning field trips for 3rd-5th grade educational student tours where teachers, students, and parents experience history coming alive.

  • 49er Fun 4th Grade Field Trips – Primarily designed for 4th grade classes, these living history field trips will bring to life California history and specifically the Gold Rush of 1849 that they will be studying in the classroom.
    • The Greenhorn – A day trip option for first time schools that are not yet ready for the full overnight experience.
    • The Mother Lode – Overnight 4th grade field trip with an even balance between visting historical sites and hands on learning.
    • The Prospector – Overnight 4th grade living history experience with a heavier focus on hands-on activities and experiential learning.
    • The Double Jack – A two day two night adventure for teachers, schools, and students who agree that 24 hours is just not enough.
  • Tour Group Field Trips – For those traveling longer distances, or who want someone else to take care of all the transportation and planning logistics. We have partnered with some Christian tour companies to make it easier to coordinate taking a trip up to Northern California to experience the Gold Rush through our 49er Fun program.
