Weis Markets Field Trips

Two engaging, real-world experiences at your local Weis Markets!

Explorers (PreK - 5th)

The many sights, sounds, scents, textures and flavors of the supermarket come to life in this hands-on journey around our store. Children will be treated to a behind-the-scenes look of the various departments in the supermarket while participating in educational activities that stimulate their senses and curiosity. After exploring the store, participants will have a chance to sample a tasty treat that they helped to create!

 

Mystery Tours (Grades 2nd - 4th)

This engaging tour was developed by the Weis Dietitians to teach children the benefits of making healthy food choices and being physically active. Tour participants literally put on their detective hats as they review the facts of the case, search for clues, and solve the mystery to help Energetic George regain his energy. By reading nutrition labels and sampling new foods, students will uncover a lifetime of healthy eating habits. An exclusive Weis Mystery Tours badge is available upon request to all scout troops who solve the case!
