    There are many small co-ops in the area that do group field trips. Local homeschool Facebook groups are a good resource for finding more information about these co-ops. A field trip at Children's Services at the Main Library can be scheduled for a group of 8 or more children. These trips can include storytime and a tour. Additionally, the main library has a new program, "Without Exception" on the 2nd and 3rd Sundays of each month from 12:00pm-1:00pm designed specifically for children with special needs and their families. The program includes stories, songs, rhymes and activities for some playtime.

    I'm looking for homeschool kids group field trips. My 8 year old daughter is high functioning autistic and she needs to improve her socialism skills.
