Every semester the BCM Scholars plan a field trip for the Fifth Dimension citizens. These trips are always educational. As a result of participating in a field trip, members' world experiences and confidence in negotiating new environments will be broadened. Participants learn about important dimension of their own and others’ cultures, the natural environment, educational and/or vocational choices, and their own futures.
Virtual Field Trips
Due to the pandemic, we were all required to social distance and quarantine. This did not stop us from planning field trips for our citizens. As of Spring 2021, we've had a Wildlife Encounter zookeeper show us different animals through Zoom and we also had an artist from a museum give us an art lesson.
In house Field Trips
As Covid regulations were easing up, it gave us the opportunity to plan in house field trips at the Boys and Girls Club of Whittier. As of Fall 2021, we've had 2 in house field trips that included a reptile show and a farm animal show.
