OPEN National Field Day was created in response to the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic when students were learning virtually, and traditional field day seemed impossible. OPEN, US Games, and a host of partners sprang into action and created a field day experience for millions of students.
In honor of that 2020 collaborative effort, OPEN National Field Day continues. We host a National Field Day Torch Relay for schools around the world to begin the Spring Field Day Season, running May through June in the United States.
We have revised our set of traditional field day activities for you to use with your students. These activities were created by the OPEN members and contributors listed in the Field Day Overview. You’ll also find the collection of field day events that were created and revised between 2020 and 2021. Partner logos are displayed to recognized and thank the many organizations who joined our efforts during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please enjoy all the resources provided. Happy Field Day Season!
