Trip Planning Zoom Meetings

Trip Planning Zoom Meetings

We are excited to offer Zoom meetings for both Trip Coordinators and Chaperones, as well as for Families and Caregivers whose youth are attending the Emerald Bay Outdoor Academy!

EBOA Trip Coordinator and Chaperone Meetings


The Trip Coordinator & Chaperone Meeting is focused on preparing the adults that will be leading the trip to help you make the most of your time at Emerald Bay.


Topics covered include:

-Course Selection & Program Planners

-Creating Cabin & Animal Groups

-Transportation & Boat FAQs

-Preparing your students and families

-Facilities information

-Pertinent Paperwork

-Roles & Responsibilities during your trip

-Additional questions


All Trip Coordinators are expected to attend one of the two meetings (both meetings will cover the same information), or watch the recording of Meeting #1 which will be provided after that meeting. However, attending a live meeting will allow time for your specific questions.


Chaperones that are not Trip Coordinators are highly encouraged to attend one of the meetings or watch the recording. Well prepared chaperones greatly contribute to a fun and successful trip.


We look forward to seeing you!

Students at Emerald Bay Sign


  • “Emerald Bay took learning and made it fun, which is hard to do”

    Ava, student
  • “I would say that it was a way to get closer to the people that you see everyday. Like for me I feel closer to my classmates than other classes because of this experience. My class and I were the first class in our school to go to this trip and it was filled with many fun activities. I think other people should visit because they will learn many new things and have fun rather than the everyday to day life. It’s nice to do something different. Like for me I sometimes get bored at home but knowing that I had something to do in a new place was nice compared to the same repetitive lifestyle. All of the staff were very helpful and happy to help and answer any questions that you have. The food was also great! Everything had a great flavor and everything was fresh and warm.”

    Emma, student
  • “Emerald Bay is so much fun, it teaches you to be a good contributor to the environment. It takes doing something serious into something fun! It makes your bunkmates feel like they are family, AND you might make new friends!”

    Liam, student
