Summer Field Study Registration Request

Submit a Summer Field Study registration request below, so your student can become a Soda City Scholar! Please carefully read over the information below before submitting your request form.



Each student is expected to bring their own non-perishable, non-microwavable lunch and at least one snack (two if they are staying for Extended Day). For safety reasons, the museum will not be able to refrigerate or microwave any meals. The museum will not provide snacks.

  • If you forget your student’s lunch, you may bring it by before 11:30 a.m. and drop it off at the Group Visits window in the planetarium lobby.

What to Wear

Students should all wear close-toed shoes. We recommend a light jacket because some of the exhibits can be cold.

What to Bring

Lunch, a snack (two if staying for Extended Day), and an eagerness to learn! The museum will provide all learning materials. Please keep all electronics (including cell phones), personal toys, stuffed animals, and blankets at home.

Release Forms

A medical release and authorized consent pickup form must be on file for every student prior to their field study date. Please complete this release form prior to your student’s field study date or bring it with you on the first day. Students will not be able to participate in a field study without a completed form.

Cancellation or Rescheduling

If your student is sick or you need to reschedule, the following applies:

  • A written cancellation request must be received two weeks before the scheduled field study in order to receive a refund.

  • No refunds will be issued for cancellations made with less than two weeks notice.

  • Rescheduling is subject to space availability.

  • The South Carolina State Museum reserves the right to reschedule or cancel any activity. A refund will be given if the museum cancels a field study.

For the Saftey of All Students

Adults are not permitted to participate in museum field study activities and are not allowed to visit classrooms during the day. Students will be brought out to you for pick-up once ID and authorization has been verified.


Completion of this form does not guarantee a reservation. Upon receipt of this form, museum staff will contact you to finalize the details of your Summer Field Study reservation and discuss payment options. Please fill out a separate request form for each student you wish to register.
