Step 3: Trip/Excursion

​​The 3rd step is the "trip" (aka field experience) step that introduces Let's Go 1-2-3 participants to a park, center, or recreation site for an in-depth excursion. Participants find this to be the most exciting part of the process, with location/excursion options such as; rock climbing, whitewater rafting, ziplining, hiking, camping, and others. ​
