10 Stages of Planning

No successful student trip simply happens overnight! The time, effort and planning that goes into it is something every educator who has traveled with students before can relate to.


Being headquartered in Illinois, we might sound biased when we say that Springfield is a must-see destination for students—but it’s really true! Learn why you and your students should experience this often-overlooked state capital and education-packed destination.

Preparing students for travel—especially those who may have never traveled on a longer overnight school trip before—can be a daunting process. There’s so much to share and learn along the way to ensure a trip runs smoothly and is both successful and enriching! Consider some of these guidelines to help prepare students for what lies ahead so they can get the most out of their upcoming adventure.
