Field Trip Planning for Catholic Institutions

When planned with care, field trips are an important component in the educational, spiritual and cultural development of participants. The Office of Risk Management recognizes the benefits of these experiences and encourages field trips. Our hope is that such trips are planned with great consideration so that risks can be mitigated and all participants will have a safe and enjoyable experience.

The Office of Risk Management has developed a guide to aid you in the process of planning field trips to help ensure the safety of your participants. The guide includes sample forms and fact sheets that we hope you will find useful. Please download the guide here:
