Anyone that does not pay through the group leader will be charged the general admission price. We take school check, cash and credit card. All adults, including staff must wear their admission sticker to show that they have checked in and payed. Children will not be given stickers. Field trip rates are not offered on weekends.
Three Hours is the average time needed to complete all the activities including eating lunch on one of our field trips. If you feel you may not have this much time, you can leave off some of the activities in order to cut out time.
In order to ensure that you get the date that you want please book at the beginning of each semester. Also, if you want to avoid the crowds book at the beginning of the week instead of the end and also book further away from major holidays ex. Halloween and Good Friday.
We are working hard to ensure that field trips at Cedar Hill Farm are as educational and fun as they can be. We are making improvements to facilities and reworking our scheduling every season to make your field trip more enjoyable.
