Deep in the heart of the enchanting state of VT, also known as Vermont, where the maple trees dance and whisper sweet tales in the wind, reside some of the most adventurous kids ever known. These are the kids who leap into the Field Trips activity with a zest only matched by the legendary syrup of their homeland. Meet Marvin, the mischievous moose, the unofficial guide and buddy on these exploits. Marvin, with his towering antlers and a grin as wide as the Lake Champlain, is a master storyteller and explorer. He's been known to ski down Mount Mansfield backwards, just for laughs! These Vermont kids are unlike any other. They don't just participate in Field Trips; they dive into them headfirst, armed with curiosity and backpacks filled with snacks. Whether they are exploring the vibrant culture of Burlington, or taking a chilling ghost tour in Montpelier, their laughter can be heard echoing throughout the Green Mountain State. One moment you'll see them marveling at the colorful explosion of fall foliage, the next they'll be clambering up the rocky trails of Camel's Hump, each moment more exciting than the last. They will even tell you how they have panned for gold in the streams of Green Mountain National Forest. Of course, Marvin, being a moose, prefers to simply splash around in the water. So, if you ever find yourself in VT, keep your eyes peeled for a group of grinning, thrill-seeking kids, followed by a laughing moose. That would be the famous Field Trips crew, off on another adventure, making VT the coolest place to be a kid!
