Golden City Trading Post Field Trip

Stay tuned for 2022 dates

GHM&P is excited to offer Golden City Trading Post, our super-fun field trip on three days in May. Partnering with multiple cultural organizations allows GHM&P to offer your school group a great and diverse selection of activities and experiences.

Alongside local partners (see video), GHM&P will provide a myriad of activities and experiences at Golden History Park. All demonstrations and crafts will be linked to Colorado history, natural history, as well as arts and crafts traditions. Watch a blacksmith in action, explore life on the frontier, and even learn about Buffalo Bill! Your students will experience over 20 activities in this self-led field trip model. All topics will be suitable for K-5 students.

Due to unprecedented popularity, our limited spaces fill up quickly. Please be certain of your selection when you register because alternate dates may not be available.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the structure of the field trip?

Students will explore our three-acre park in small groups with their chaperones. They can choose where they will spend their time and will have a map to see all of their options. Think of it like the zoo, but with varied activities instead of animals to visit.

Will the park be secure and safe?

The park is three acres. The responsibility of monitoring each individual student will be on the chaperones and teachers which you provide.

Will my group be at Golden History Park with other students?

This experience is only open to K-5 students and chaperones. We will have multiple schools on site at the same time, including homeschooling groups.

Can I bring my whole grade or homeschool group?

Yes! Depending on the size of the group we will try to fit you into time slots with other groups, so that we do not overcrowd the park.

Are there resources to help me prepare myself and my students?

Teachers will be provided with pre-trip materials via email.

Is there a justification sheet I can submit to my administrator?

If you would like a justification statement to submit to your administration, please email us with your students’ grade and any other pertinent information.
