To reserve a field trip, choose a laboratory, select an open date from our CALENDAR and submit a Reservation Request form. Contact Ginger Foulk at 864-656-4224 with any questions about reservations.
After submitting a reservation request, you will receive an official confirmation email within a few days issuing a deposit payment deadline, a detailed Logistics Letter (contains all you need to know to finish planning your trip!) and a Parent Consent/Release of Liability form to copy for each student. Review the Life Sciences Outreach Center Safety Guidelines with your students in advance.
A deposit of $100 is required to secure your reservation. Do not pay anything until you have received official confirmation of your reservation from Ginger Foulk and she has issued a deposit payment deadline. If preferred, payment may be made in full. Online payment with a credit card is the preferred method of payment.
Deposits are nonrefundable. If a schedule conflict arises, laboratory field trip reservations may be rescheduled with two weeks notice within the same academic session. The Center will reschedule with less notice if school is canceled due to weather or a similar unforeseen circumstance. (If Pickens or Oconee county schools are closed or delayed the Center will not open and we will reschedule your laboratory field trip).
Payment is due in fulll two weeks prior to the date of your confirmed laboratory field trip.
So that we may properly plan and prepare for your laboratory, ANY changes to the number of students confirmed in your original reservation should be submitted two weeks prior to your trip.
Fees are as follows for one laboratory experience:
- One laboratory field trip (up to 16 participants) — $200
- One laboratory field trip (17-32 participants) — $300
- Two concurrent laboratory field trips (33-48 participants) — $500
- Two concurrent laboratory field trips (49-64 participants) — $600
Once you have received a reservation confirmation and a deposit payment deadline, return here to make a secure, online payment. Do NOT pay unless your reservation has been confirmed and you have a payment due date.
