In addition to our many daily field trips that are offered for all grades throughout the academic year, we offer the unique opportunity to expand learning beyond the local attractions of our city. Below you will find examples of three Overnight Field Trips offered to 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. 

N otre Dame Academy 5th grade students will be traveling to Waycross, GA to visit the Okefenokee Swamp Park. While there, they will enjoy a guided boat tour of the swamp, in which they will embark on a journey that will take them down original Seminole Indian waterways; at ten an "Eye on Nature" program, where they will learn more about the native animals of the Okefenokee Swamp; and take a ride on the Swamp Park Train, featuring a stop at Pioneer Island. Afterward, students will be enjoying a lock-in at the Waycross YMCA before returning to ND Academy the following day.
