Lake compounce Field Trip

Students will enjoy an all-day celebration at Lake Compounce Amusement Park in Bristol, CT. They are to arrive at school at the regular time and organize themselves by team before departing at 8:00am; Buses should return to Saxe by 3:30pm (*students should arrange for transportation home). The day will include amusement park rides, access to the waterpark, and a barbeque style luncheon. The park provides two large pavilions for weather protection if needed. Lake Compounce offers fully-trained personnel to staff each activity and additional trained medical staff for first aid situations. In addition, the 8th grade teachers and I will attend to supervise students throughout the day. Dress is casual, and students may want to bring a towel and/or change of clothes for the water park. We suggest that students wear and/or bring sunscreen and pack lightly (i.e. a backpack). Chaperones are not able to assist students in managing their personal belongings, but Lake Compounce provides a secure area for backpacks. We recommend that students refrain from bringing electronic devices beyond their cell phones. Payments should be made online via SchoolCash, If you encounter technical difficulties, please call 866-961-1903 for 24-hour School Cash assistance.
