Chaperone Policy

As part of the Mission’s ongoing dedication to the safety of visiting school groups, we have changed our chaperone policies. Any adult with a school group will now be given a special sticker indicating that they are part of a school group. In addition to this safety precaution the Mission will also now be admitting the one required chaperone for every 10 students for free. Any adult accompanying a field trip beyond this ratio will now be considered a “Field Trip Guest” who will be required to pay an admission fee based on registration program pricing. There will be three categories for adults who accompany a school group:

Teacher/Aid – Free with students

Chaperone – One chaperone for every 10 students is free per the required adult to student ratio

Field Trip Guest – Any adults beyond this 1:10 chaperone/student ratio who choose to join the field trip will be charged a fee based on reservation program pricing. It will be up to the teacher/field trip organizer of the field trip to determine the current adult to student ratio based on their group size before the groups arrive at the Mission.


Teachers! Free Individual Membership!

We are now offering a free individual membership for any teacher who brings their students into the Mission Store or Mission Cart after your field trip! If you prefer not to enter the Mission Store with your students but would like them to have an opportunity to purchase a souvenir, please complete our teacher or student pre-shop forms. Turn in your student pre-shop forms or teacher pre-shop form and still receive a FREE membership with 10% discount all year long!


Monthly Teacher Appreciation Day at the Mission

Join us every 2nd Saturday of the month for Teacher Appreciation Day. Teachers get in free with valid teacher ID.


Celebrating Our Teachers

As a special token of our appreciation to long-time teachers, we have implemented a recognition program for teachers who reach special milestones in their careers.

If you are a teacher who has been coming to the Mission for five or more years, please let us know when you book your program and upon arrival for your field trip you’ll receive a commemorative pin thanking you for bringing your students to the Mission year after year!

Thank you for educating the next generation and inspiring students to care for historic sites like Mission San Juan Capistrano. You are an inspiration to us all.
