  1. I am the students event coordinator for Seeds of Faith homeschool group. I am wondering if you have information or contact information on how to set up a field trip like this for homeschoolers in the Lapeer area. This sounds like a great opportunity for students. I did not come across this in the time it was needed to advertise to homeschoolers in this area and would like to schedule it again if I could. Any help in the matter would be appreciated. Thank you.

    1. Hi Jane,

      You can simply contact any of your local colleges, universities, TV stations, etc. and speak with HR or on-site coordinators about setting up field trips for groups and they can fill you in on group rates, times, etc.
