Engage your students with a field trip to Horizons

Finding, planning, and coordinating field trips can be a daunting task for teachers and administrators. We make it easy, meaningful, and walk with you the whole way. We build transformative, screen-free, engaging trips for students.

Why we host field trips

Unplug to Connect

In a world of disconnection, Bethel Horizons provides field trips for you and your students to connect in meaningful ways. Teachers routinely tell us that their students are connected and show more engagement in their studies upon returning to school. Field trips to Horizons create stronger, healthier school communities.
