For students from Hutch School a journey this month to SeaWorld was as close as a field trip to Residence Inn by Marriott—Seattle Downtown/Lake Union.
SeaWorld came to Seattle as part of a promotional tour highlighting the park's education and conservation programs. In addition to providing accommodations, Residence Inn staff arranged for Hutch School students to meet the animal experts and have unique up close encounters with the critters, which included a red kangaroo, kinkajou, an alligator, a screamer and a roseate spoonbill.
The Hutch School is a fully accredited K-12 school program sponsored by the Hutchinson Center and Seattle Public Schools. Its mission is to serve patients (and their family members) receiving treatment at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
