Due to staffing shortages and the ongoing COVID pandemic, SPARK! will not be offering field trips for the spring semester. We are hopeful to resume field trips in the fall and encourage you to follow us on social media for any updates.
All visits are located at SPARK! and each visit is split evenly between an instructor-led activity and free, unstructured play. Reservations are on a first-come basis and are confirmed upon receipt of payment and agreement.
PLEASE CONTACT US AT PROGRAMS@SPARKDALLAS.ORG FOR MORE DETAILS

- If you need to reschedule your visit, you must contact the programs department at least two (2) weeks before your scheduled visit date in order for your payment to be applied to a new visit date.
- Rescheduling is based on availability.
- In the event that you are unable to attend a program for which you have registered, and your request is received by SPARK! with more than 30-days notice, you will receive a 25% refund of amount already paid.
- If SPARK! is closed due to circumstances beyond our control (e.g. inclement weather, utility outage, or any other issue that may prohibit our ability to deliver a true SPARK! experience) all programs will automatically be canceled and 100% refund will be issued.
- If SPARK! is open, but your group chooses not to come, no refund will be issued.
