Student Trips


Experiential education is  one of the many hallmarks of Country Day’s engaging, student-centered curriculum. Annual off-campus trips support the school’s curriculum and reinforce the sense of community.  

Students explore marine biology at Marin Headlands, hike the trails of Yosemite, and travel north to Ashland’s Oregon Shakespeare Festival to experience the English language at its finest. 

The 4th grade overnight adventure at Sutter’s Fort, a quarter-century tradition, invites children to spend 24 hours in an authentic pioneer stronghold portraying characters from the 1840s.
