GAGA FIELD TRIP Last summer, The Gagasphere hosted over 25 area recreation and Y camps for the Gaga Field Trip.  What is Gaga? It’s a fast paced ball game that is known as the “playground equalizer” because it doesn’t require special athletic skills.  Kids ages 6-16 can play gaga – boys and girls love it equally.  Summer camps come for a field trip that gets the kids moving, laughing and having a blast.  Priced on a per camper basis, counselors come for free.  The Gaga Pros teach the game and then play many different versions of gaga with the kids. They also offer a new game – 9 Square in The Air also!  Time/space for bagged lunch is also available.

STEM+GAGA FIELD TRIP For a great academic/fun combination school class trip, The Gagasphere has a STEM+GAGA trip that has been a hit since its inception. The field trip integrates STEM learning with a fun, hands-on Roller Coaster Physics workshop that focuses on science/engineering concepts. They pair what they learn about the forces of motion and energy with the foundations of the game of Gaga.  The combination is a fun field trip that exercises both body and mind!

The silver bullet's twin v-12 turbo-charged diesel engines will show you the wildwoods as it speeds up and down the ocean front in a truly one-of-a-kind way.

The only thing that puts a stop the hard-charging raw speed of the Silver Bullet is the daily spotting of dolphin friends! The captain will aptly maneuver you to the dolphins favorite fishing spot where you and your family will have the best time watching the dolphins glide and cavort alongside the Silver Bullet. You'll also see many other types of marine life and aquatic birds along the way.

Of course, there's nothing like a Silver Bullet tan, so be sure to pack the sunscreen and wear casual clothes or a bathing suit, so the spray will cool and refresh you.
