Visiting School Groups Pre-Shopping

windcatchersAt SunWatch, we know that one of the most exciting parts of a field trip for students is to purchase souvenirs as mementos of their visit. We also know that group leaders’ time may be limited, and supervision of large groups can be challenging. To address these issues, SunWatch offers an alternative to individual shopping through Visiting School Groups Pre-Shopping.
