Cortland Youth Bureau Summer Field Trips

The Cortland Youth Bureau’s Youth Center is proud to announce our 2012 summer field trip lineup. This year’s trips are gaining a lot of attention and are sure to fill up quickly. Trips are open to kids age 13 to 18 or in the 7th through 12th grades (kids who just completed 6th grade and this year’s high school graduates are eligible).

All trips are carefully planned and closely supervised by full-time CYB staff members. Each trip has a minimum and maximum number of spots. If the minimum is not met by the registration deadline, the trip will be cancelled.

Together we’re going places. Join us for a day of thrilling roller coasters as we visit Darien Lake July 13th, register by July 6. We’ll be enjoying water-slides and tubing at Enchanted Forest Water Safari on July 20, register by July 13. We’ll be headed for a day of scenic beauty and sightseeing in the Thousand Islands on July 27, register by July 20. Tag along as we make our way to another of New York’s best theme parks Seabreeze Amusement Park on August 3, register by July 27. August 10 we are hosting our annual Family Trip; this year we’ll be visiting Fair Haven Beach, please register by August 3. Parents and grandparents are welcome to sign up with their kids; younger children are also eligible if a parent or guardian will be joining them. We’ll wrap the summer trip season up with a thrilling visit to the Cayuga Nature Center where we’ll enjoy hiking, a ropes-course, and a six-story tree house, register by August 2.

Trip fees can be paid in cash or with service credits. Students who volunteer at the Youth Center or around Cortland can turn their time into discounts on the Center’s field trips. For every hour a youth spends volunteering, the Center will take $3.00 off the price of a trip.

Registrations are taken at both the Youth Center and CYB main office, at 35 Port Watson Street in Cortland. For more information, contact the Youth Center staff at 753-3580. Have a safe and happy summer!
