Master Field Trip Schedule
Participants enjoy a full schedule of on-site activities including games, arts and crafts and many trips. Registration fee does not include trips. Step Out is a drop-in recreation program. Participants are required to time themselves in upon arrival and time themselves out when they depart. Registered participants that arrive via shuttle bus should depart by shuttle at the end of the program day; no participant that rides the shuttle should depart the site walking unless site staff is notified. Once signed out, a participant must immediately leave the school campus, and those signed out are not permitted to return on the same day. Parents may check with site staff regarding special leave/return situations. It’s important that parents give participants a clear message regarding permission to leave the site prior to the end of a day’s program; again, this is a drop-in program.
Download the weekly schedules here. The schedule notes on-site special activities, reminders of things to bring to the program and trips/outings. Please be sure to pick up the schedule at the program site or download it here so you may plan for the next week. For more information, please check with the staff at each site for specific information about program activities. Each site is assigned a Leader III who supervises that program, a Leader II to assist the Leader III, bus drivers and several Leader I’s.

Lunch will be offered for sale at the Step Out sites on Friday throughout the summer. In addition, some field trips will include lunch. Participants not purchasing lunch should bring a lunch from home. Please note that no refrigerator or microwave is available for perishable foods, so please pack lunches accordingly. If your child is scheduled for a field trip other eating arrangments may have to be made. A free lunch program is offered at Peoria High School by the PUSD.
Shuttles are available from all PUSD elementary schools within Peoria city limits. Be on time for pick ups and drop offs as shuttles are not able to wait for children to arrive or be picked up. Make arrangements at drop off for someone to be there if your child needs assistance getting home.
