Abstract

         Tourism field trips is one of the activities that the juvenile are intrigued in and mostly spend their time for since such an activity enables them to learn and travel simultaneously. Deemed as an integral part in youth development as mentioned in developmental psychology, it helps to broaden their horizon of knowledge and enhance their own experiences from traveling to many tourist attractions and becoming appreciated with natural resources, arts, traditions, cultures, and ways of life of the locals. Moreover, it helps to engage the juvenile in any other activity contributing to their development in various areas: physical, mental, emotional, psychosocial, and cognitive development. The combination of the development drives them to the people of high caliber, in terms of morality, ethics, and wisdom, in the future and is the foundation in driving the country to success.
