School Field Trips/Group Visits

A school field trip or group visit to Imagi Nation is a one-of-a-kind, seamless combination of education and entertainment as children role-play over 40 different career choices.  Students acquire real life skills and experience first-hand how to run a business and be a good employee, all while being introduced to the fundamentals of financial literacy.

Our school and group experiences are masterfully crafted, aligned with PA Academic Standards, and are hosted by a team of experienced, certified teachers.  Visits are ideal for schools, Boy and Girl Scouts, church groups, mom's clubs, sports teams, or just a fun day out!

What makes an Imagi Nation visit exceptionally different is the way our team of educators carefully weave social skills development into every activity.  In a world of technology where children spend the majority of their day behind a screen, an Imagi Nation experience allows them to interact in real time, in real world situations with others.  So whether your students are challenged with communication, decision making, problem solving, or conflict resolution skills, an Imagi Nation field trip or group visit incorporates them all.
