A Homeschool Odyssey to Washington D.C.

The class trip is a rite of passage for many middle and high school students. The experience of loading up the bus with friends and tasting independence while visiting some far-flung destination is one most will never forget. If you homeschool, the opportunities for peer group travel may be fewer or more challenging. Families, co-ops and academies may not have access to the same travel resources available to public schools – until now! Animado Events is unveiling its Homeschool Odyssey Series with an incredible adventure to Washington D.C. – EXCLUSIVELY for homeschool students!

Homeschool Odyssey – Journey into Learning Washington D.C.

Middle and high school-aged homeschool students will converge on the nation’s capital this October 10-14, 2019 for an education-based travel experience.  Journey into Learning Washington D.C. is fresh and fun – completely different than anything you’ve done before. It features STEM, history, culture and arts with lots of opportunities to explore and make connections!

What’s Included?

Students will arrive (travel to Washington D.C. is the responsibility of families or co-ops) and meet with their personal Animado Events tour director. They’ll check into the hotel and prepare for a power-packed itinerary. Stops include:

• National Museum of the Marine Corps
• Washington National Cathedral including the behind the scenes tour
• Smithsonian Museums (with advance educational material provided)
• Memorial and Monument tour
• National Mall including a National Park Service Education Program

Fundraising for the Class Trip

The paperwork has come home for the class trip. It’s going to be an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience for your child – a chance to explore a bit of the world outside the protective parental umbrella. Truth be told, you are already planning date night as you anticipate a blissfully quiet couple of days! Then you skim to the bottom for payment information and realize date night might be dinner at McDonald’s…

Take heart! There are countless ways to help offset the cost of student travel. Everyone has a different situation and comfort level for fundraising, so it’s good to have options. Here are a few of my favorites:

FanAngel

FanAngel is a secure, online platform for raising funds. Its mission is to help school and sports groups successfully raise as much money as possible (90% of every donation goes to the beneficiary.) FanAngel uses a simple formula of personalization (like an URL unique to your group), automation and participation. A representative will guide you step-by-step through the set-up process and send you templates for emails, videos and other resources to help you succeed!

Simply Sheets

Simply Sheets has you “covered” with an easy way to fundraise. Luxury sheets that are washable and incredibly comfortable are a great seller in any market. You can set your own profit margin (40 – 55% local or 40% online) and reach your goal in your sleep (see what I did there?!)

CG3 Battery Fundraising

If you like the idea of having a product to offer but are tired of the same old wrapping paper, try CG3 Battery Fundraising. Everyone can use batteries, and this pack of assorted sizes is great to have around the house. Other power-based items are available as well as the ability to add your brand/logo to some products.

School-A-Thon

Plan a colorful run while earning “green” for your trip. Involve your community in a race that showers you with plant-based color along the way. Reach your financial target while being a target for fun as the race gets underway!

World’s Finest Chocolate

The name says it all! As a pro bono quality control tester (wink, wink), I can assure you that the title rings true. Melt-in-your-mouth chocolates, a great profit margin (up to 50%), no up-front costs and available incentives make World’s Finest Chocolate an easy way to help pay for your trip.

Student travel can be a strain on the wallet. However, the experience of travel is priceless. Exploring one of these fundraising options can help make it more accessible to all students and groups. It also might mean a date night that involves more than a drive -thru!

For more information about these and other fundraising opportunities, contact Kaleidoscope Adventures, your trusted student travel partner.  Kaleidoscope does travel beyond expectations!

Take Center Stage in New York City

There’s nothing like the experience of live theatre. Iconic or cutting-edge shows, thrilling performances and crowds pulsing with energy draw us in like nothing else. It’s a magnificent experience, especially when the theatre is in the heart of New York City! Student and performance groups often include a Broadway show on their itineraries. Imagine if they also included an opportunity to shine on a New York City stage! Spotlight your students in these unique performance venues – and make them the stars of the show!

Manhattan Concert Productions

Your ensemble can perform on stage in famous venues with exceptional guest faculty when you collaborate with Manhattan Concert Productions. They offer experiences you won’t find anywhere else, including the following:

Symphonic Series

Bands and orchestras participate in a private clinic with a guest faculty member and receive feedback from an acclaimed panel of nationally recognized experts. The residency culminates in a daytime concert at Carnegie Hall.

New York City Jazz Festival

Hosted at New York City’s acclaimed Symphony Space, the New York City Jazz Festival gives instrumental and vocal jazz ensembles the opportunity to perform as part of a ticketed daytime concert while receiving recorded comments from an outstanding panel of nationally-recognized jazz experts. Additionally, each ensemble will receive a private clinic with one of the panel members.

Broadway Series

Imagine a classic Broadway production with a star-studded cast, professional orchestra and… your students!  The Broadway Series debuted in 2013 with a sold-out concert performance of Ragtime and continues its successful run in 2019 with The Scarlet Pimpernel.  It’s an incredible opportunity to take the stage at Lincoln Center with the very best in the industry!

Take It Outside

If you’re working on a limited budget, consider an outdoor performance in the city. If your group is 20 or more, you can apply for a special permit from the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation to perform in one of the city’s public parks. The application fee is only $25 but takes 21-30 days to process. Imagine wowing the crowds in Central Park or Battery Park – talk about making the world your stage!

 

 

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Millions of viewers tune in each year to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Wouldn’t it be awesome if they were watching your band marching down 34th Street? This national Turkey Day tradition is a phenomenal way to showcase your hardworking students in an exciting and energetic venue that’s broadcast across the United States. After all, everyone loves a parade!

Town Hall

The Town Hall has a 1500 seat theatre and hosts thousands of students each year. It’s designated a National Historic Landmark because of the important role it played during the women’s suffrage movement – a unique way to combine history and performance in a place where there’s “not a bad seat in the house.”

Broadway Classroom and Disney Theatrical Workshop

If your goal is to make your students more comfortable and confident on stage, you may want to consider a workshop experience like Broadway Classroom or Disney Theatrical Workshop.

Broadway Classroom is a series of workshops designed to engage students in the disciplines of theatre. Popular workshops include Broadway basics, music, choreography and staging, the business of a Broadway career, professional Q & As and an anti-bullying themed class. Workshops are typically 90 minutes and are held in the Broadway rehearsal studios.

If your group wants to dig a little deeper into the art of the theatre, try a Disney Theatrical Workshop. Running at an itinerary-friendly 90 minutes, these workshops are led by expert Disney Teaching Artists and allow the group to explore the mechanics of a performance – from on stage to behind the scenes.

Kaleidoscope Adventures: Educating Students Through Travel

The expert team at Kaleidoscope Adventures will work with you to find just the right experience for your group to take center stage in New York City. Count on your trusted partners to flawlessly handle and execute the details of your performance trip and make it one your students will never forget!

400th Anniversary of the Mayflower’s Arrival in Plymouth

The word “Thanksgiving” conjures up warm childhood memories of paper hand turkeys, feathered headbands, nifty Pilgrim songs, turkey and stuffing. All in all, an accurate representation of our forefathers’ first Thanksgiving, right? Hmmmm…. four hundred years of history tells us that perhaps this isn’t precisely true.

If you want to help set the record straight, plan a student trip to Plymouth, Massachusetts in 2020 for the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower’s arrival in Plymouth Harbor. This internationally anticipated event will highlight the story of the Wampanoag and English people and their cultural contributions to America.

Plimoth Plantation

Plimoth Plantation, an interactive 17th century experience centered on the Wampanoag people and the English settlers of Plymouth Colony, will be at the heart of the celebrations. Plimoth Plantation has been committed to sharing a realistic perspective of life in the 1600s since 1947. Visiting student groups will interact with history in a uniquely engaging setting while exploring the daily challenges and triumphs of both the settlers and Native People.

As part of the commemorations, Plimoth’s full-scale reproduction of the Mayflower (the Mayflower II) will be renovated and stand ready to share the experience of traveling across the Atlantic with 102 passengers for 66 days. Students may be shocked that it isn’t quite as luxurious as the cruise ships of modern times!

Pilgrim Hall Museum

Pilgrim Hall Museum will be part of the 400th festivities as well.  Founded in 1824, it is the oldest continuously operating museum in the country.  Pilgrim Hall Museum will exhibit People & Icons of Early Plymouth February through December of 2020.  In addition, a large-scale embroidered tapestry telling the story of Plymouth will be on display.  It promises to be a distinctive tribute to the Wampanoag and English people of 1620.

400th Events in Plymouth

The town of Plymouth will host a series of signature events throughout the year, beginning with an opening ceremony April 24, 2020 at Plymouth’s Memorial Hall. This historic occasion will set the stage for the 400th as guest speakers, performers, international dignitaries and heads of state come together to honor the past and look to the future. Other events slated for 2020-2021 include:

• Official Maritime Salute to the 400th (June 27-28)
• Wampanoag Ancestors Walk (August 15)
• Official State House Salute to the 400th (September 14)
• Embarkation Festival (September 19-20)
• Indigenous History Conference and Pow Wow (October 30 – November 1)

Illuminate Thanksgiving November 20-25, 2020

Thanksgiving Week of 2020 in Plymouth promises to be monumental. Designed with young people in mind, the week’s events are designed to spotlight America’s rich heritage and encourage gratitude and giving in all communities. Activities include:

• America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Concerts (November 20)
• America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Parade (November 21)
• Illuminate Thanksgiving Festival: “One Small Candle” Ceremony (November 22)
• Thanksgiving Festival Events (November 23-24)

Each of these magnificent gatherings leads up to the Illuminate Thanksgiving Main Event on November 25, 2020. Illuminate Thanksgiving is inspired by Governor William Bradford’s quote, “…as one small candle may light a thousand, so the light kindled hath shone unto many…”

Kaleidoscope Adventures: Educating Students Through Travel

KAndid Advice for Washington D.C.

There’s no better civics lesson than a trip to Washington D.C. There are standard favorites and must-dos… the Smithsonian Museums, monuments and memorials, a walk past 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. However, there’s so much more to experience in our nation’s capital than you may realize. The Kaleidoscope Adventures staff has years of experience touring our nation’s capital with students. As a result, they have collected some exceptional nuggets of wisdom to help you make the most of your Washington D.C. trip.

National Museum of the Marine Corps

Robin (Kaleidoscope Adventures President) always includes this stop on D.C. itineraries. The National Museum of the Marine Corps tells more than 200+ years of the Marine Corps’ rich history, with collections that highlight “the warrior on the front lines to the families on the home front.” It’s a great venue for student groups, who can even enjoy a boxed lunch in the Devil Dog Diner!

National Archives

The National Archives is a hot spot for Ray (KA consultant) and a great chance to study how the actions of the Federal Government are based in our Constitution. Participants take on the roles of archivists and researchers completing a very important assignment: providing the President of the United States with real-life examples of our Constitution in action. The National Archives also houses the three original “Charters of Freedom,” including the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Newseum

Noelle (operations) is a big fan of the Newseum for student groups. The Newseum is a high-tech, interactive museum highlighting the past, present and history of journalism. It’s super easy for groups of all sizes to navigate and students are fascinated by the engaging exhibits.

The National Air & Space Museum Annex at Dulles Airport (Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center)

This facility is a companion facility to the National Air & Space Museum on the Mall and a favorite venue for Keith (chief operating officer). Students may remember it from the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen movie. Keith likes it because it’s an in-depth experience of American aviation history (he’s probably a fan of Jetfire as well!)

FDR Memorial

Another Keith highlight is the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial. Situated halfway between the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, it’s path winds past waterfalls, bronze sculptures and FDR’s own powerful words carved into the granite walls. All the D.C. memorials should be on your tour list, but this one really should not be missed.

Frederick Douglass National Historic Site

Michelle (KA consultant) likes to round out the itinerary with a stop at the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site. Guided tours are available at this home of famous abolitionist and reformer, Frederick Douglass. Catch a glimpse of the statesman’s life, legacy and impact on America.

House of the Temple

Here’s a unique attraction that most don’t realize should be part of the itinerary! The Masonic House of the Temple offers a glimpse into the secret world of the masons. The building, completed in 1915, is an adaptation of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It’s about 10 minutes outside of D.C. but definitely worth the stop.

Instrumental Performance Clinic

Joseph (senior tour consultant) has a secret weapon for band directors in his D.C. arsenal. One of the most effective concert band clinics with the highest music education content exists in Washington DC. Professional musicians will sit in each section of your concert band or wind ensemble while the ensemble works with a conductor/clinician on the podium. The pros will play along with your students. They’ll also play separately so the conductor/clinician can demonstrate specific concepts or subtleties that are best be heard, rather than explained. Watch the performance standard of your ensemble rise before your very ears!

As you plan your student trip to Washington D.C., tuck these tips in your back pocket. Better yet, call Kaleidoscope Adventures directly to chat with our expert staff. More than 25+ years in the student travel industry gives us some serious street cred! We’ll work with you to create a unique itinerary that meets all your objectives. KA really is travel beyond expectations!

KAndid Advice for New York City

New York City reigns supreme as one of our favorite student destinations. There’s so much to see and do, it’s hard to squeeze it all in. Our expert staff has some great group tips for getting the most out of New York City!

Rockefeller Center

Stephanie (tour consultant) absolutely loves Rockefeller Center for student groups. It’s a one stop shop for the best of NYC. The observation deck at Top of the Rock is usually less crowded than the Empire State Building and offers a stunning, unobstructed view of the city. The NBC Studios tour is popular with students and tons of fun. If traveling during the winter months, a stop at the ice rink is a must. If traveling during the holidays, the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center is a spectacular must-see!

Freehand Hotel

Steven (tour consultant) is a big fan of the Freehand Hotel for accommodations. Located in the historic Flatiron District, the Freehand has an artsy vibe, great food and a unique flair. Students will love this distinctly New York City experience.

Dough and DeKalb Market Hall

Kadianne (operations manager and former resident of NYC) knows its “sweet” spots. A favorite is “Dough,” located in Brooklyn and the Flatiron District. Dough is known for its legendary and mouthwatering doughnuts. DeKalb Market Hall in Brooklyn is also a great option for all kinds of local flavor – students can taste a little bit of everything!

One World Observatory

One World Observatory at the Westfield World Trade Center is another favorite stop for Kadianne. SkyPod elevators climb 102 stories in 42 seconds for a view like none other!

Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

Keith (chief operating officer) understands The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum offers a rare opportunity for the youth of today to interact with the heroes of the past. Precious few years remain that will allow younger generations to spend time face to face with those who served on ships like the Intrepid. Capture these teachable moments before they slip away.

Lower East Side Tenement Museum and Ellis Island

Keith also has another awesome gem to share with student groups- the Lower East Side Tenement Museum. This landmark building tells the story of immigrants to New York City between the 19th and 21st centuries through the personal experiences of those who lived here. Couple this experience with a trip to Ellis Island  and the Statue of  Liberty to help students understand the role of immigration in our nation’s evolving identity.

Staten Island Ferry

If you just want a great harbor view (and photo op!) of the Statue of Liberty, Michelle (KA consultant) suggests a ride on the Staten Island Ferry. Leaving approximately every 20 minutes from Battery Park, the ferry is free and takes your group right past the Statue.

As you plan your student trip to New York City, tuck these tips in your back pocket. Better yet, call Kaleidoscope Adventures directly to chat with our expert staff.

KAndid Advice for Planning Student Trips to Orlando

Traveling to a new destination with students is exciting… and nerve-wracking! Wouldn’t it be great to have a cheat sheet? Imagine if that cheat sheet came from some of the best student tour professionals in the business. KAndid Advice is just that- expert tips from Kaleidoscope Adventures staff to help you navigate a new destination and get the most from your student travel. Let’s start with some KAndid advice for planning student trips to Orlando…

Everyone knows that Orlando is home to world-class theme parks and attractions. It’s a student favorite for a reason! However, there are lots of amazing things to do with student groups outside the parks – and the KA staff is giving you an insider’s look.

Wild Florida

Anastasiya (accounting and IT manager) loves Wild Florida as an alternative to the hustle and bustle of theme parks. Wild Florida is a one-of-a-kind wildlife experience, offering airboat rides, alligator encounters, and a great variety of wading, floating and flying birds. A petting zoo and some great BBQ round out the fun. Students will talk about this adventure for years – and they’ll never forget their first airboat ride!

Beach BBQ and Escape Room

Joseph (senior tour consultant) has some great ideas for getting off the beaten path. Consider a half day BBQ lunch at the beach. Just about an hour’s ride from the hotels, it’s one of his favorite things to do with students. They love the sun, fun and food while teachers and chaperones enjoy a break from the chaos.
Joseph also follows up a beach day with a visit to an escape room. Orlando offers a few great choices, all guaranteed to test wits and tickle the funny bone. Escape Rooms are also great for team building. Pit the girls against the boys or the trumpets against the clarinets in the ultimate quest to solve a puzzle!

Kennedy Space Center

Not far from Orlando is the Kennedy Space Center, a favorite of both Keith (chief operating officer) and Stephanie (tour consultant). The Kennedy Space Center offers an in-depth look at space and space travel and the role both played in our nation’s history. Students can get up close and personal with the Saturn V rocket or experience what it was like to be in the Firing Room for the launch of Apollo 8. It’s a great way to incorporate STEM into your itinerary and “have a blast” while doing it!

2015 Class Trips and Graduation Parties at Universal Orlando Resort

Hard Rock Café

If you’re looking for a great dining option for students, Steven (tour consultant and resident musician!) recommends the Hard Rock Café. Just steps from both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, it’s group-friendly and features an eclectic, American-style menu to satisfy even the pickiest eaters. Students are also surrounded by cool music memorabilia and encouraged to join in the pop-up sing-alongs. So much fun!

As you plan your student trip to Orlando, tuck these tips in your back pocket. Better yet, call Kaleidoscope Adventures directly to chat with our expert staff. More than 25+ years in the student travel industry gives us some serious street cred! We’ll work with you to create a unique itinerary that meets all your objectives. KA really is travel beyond expectations!

Selling Trips to Parents and Students

You have a great idea for a trip. You just KNOW the kids are going to flock to sign up for this epic adventure which will seamlessly tie together your curriculum and probably put you in the running for teacher of the year. You confidently post the sign-up sheet and wait for the signatures to pour in. Three days later, you are still waiting for that first lucky student to put pen to paper. What’s going on?!?

Expert Teacher

As a teacher, you have unique skills and talents. You affect change and influence lives in a way that most people cannot. You juggle students, parents, administration and community while handling mountains of paperwork and instruction. You recognize teachable moments when they pop up (thus the reason for your trip!) and neatly incorporate them into your instruction. That said, selling trips to parents and students is probably not in your wheelhouse.

Expert Salesperson?

Being an expert teacher does not necessarily qualify you as an expert in student travel promotion. Regardless of the inherent awesomeness of your trip, it can be a challenge to convince students and parents to sign up. You have to generate a little buzz, create a great marketing campaign, address parent concerns and manage the financial aspects of the experience. In short, it requires a LOT of work!

Tools to Make it Happen

Trips are successful and well-attended when you plan with the right tools. Kaleidoscope Adventures will get your trip on track with helpful resources developed by our in-house marketing team. Our marketing kit includes:

• Engaging video created for parents and students to help build excitement for the trip
• Relevant and clearly-presented information about your chosen destination
• Value of travel as part of a well-rounded education
• Inspiring student testimonials about how travel impacts lives
• Fundraising options and ideas to help your trip succeed

We know you have a lot of time and energy invested in planning this incredible opportunity for students. However, you don’t have to shoulder the burden alone! Filling those participant slots is a lot easier with a little help from the experts. Trust Kaleidoscope to take the lead on your adventure and motivate students to sign up for your once-in-a-lifetime teachable moment!
