Field Trip Permission Form needs to be completed once a year BEFORE you attend a field trip.

Field Trip FAQ:

Do I need to Sign up?  School field trips typically have additional activities that are not available with a seasonal pass.  Please check the individual sign-ups for specific information.  Space is limited and only those who have signed up will be allowed to attend.

Can I get a refund?  We reserve and pay for field trips before the event.  No refunds can be given; however, you may sell your spot to another family and are welcome to post it on the schools Facebook page to find an interested CGA family.

Who can go on the field trips? Field trips are for families enrolled in Canyon Grove only.  (One chaperone, enrolled student and siblings aged 0 – 5) Venues give us specific numbers of tickets for students and adults and we need these tickets for our enrolled students. Older children and extended family members CANNOT attend. 1 ADULT/CHAPERONE PER FAMILY.

What if I am running late?  NO late arrivals will be admitted, no exceptions, and you will lose any fees paid. We are required to check in and pay as a group. The locations will not allow any arrivals once the payment has been made.  If you arrive late, you will be asked to pay the normal price.

How do we get to/from the field trips?  We do not provide transportation, you will need to provide that on your own.

Canyon Grove Biztown 2019

5th & 6th Grade Students – Come help us run a town for a day! Will you work in the bank, the grocery store, or be the mayor? What will you spend your “paycheck” on? Biztown is a student-sized town located in the Discovery Gateway Museum in SLC. We are inviting a small group of motivated 5th & 6th graders to participate for the day on April 5th.

To qualify for this really amazing simulation, you must commit to attending the Junior Achievement classes over the next month and doing the work involved to prepare. You need to be ready to run your “business” while you are there! We will meet on the Pleasant Grove campus and also online – see the schedule below. It is only a month away, so we will have daily lessons online for you to complete so that you feel ready to run the town – lessons about money, work, and career readiness…and also be prepared to vote in the election. It will take dedication and some consistent daily preparation, but it will also be loads of fun!

Antelope Island Buffalo Point Hike

March 29th, 2019 9:45 am meetup/ 10:00 am start

This guided hike to Buffalo Point will take about an hour. It is a half-mile hike, with no shade and an elevation gain, to a fun and breathtaking overlook of Great Salt Lake and the north end of the Island. Discussions and activities will focus on the geology of the area; how Antelope Island got here, the type and age of the rocks, and the life of Great Salt Lake, including Lake Bonneville.

This field trip is for enrolled students and ONE adult per family.

The meeting place is in the parking lot of Buffalo Point. The trailhead sign is on the westside of the parking lot and our guide will park her easily identifiable park ranger truck near by.  There are signs pointing the way to Buffalo Point once people drive across the causeway.

Great Salt Lake Education Packet
Antelope Island History

This is free to sign up for, but you will need to pay the discounted field trip rate of $1.00 per person to enter the park. (Regularly $10 per vehicle or $3 per person)

Sign up closed/full*
* The venue has now offered us field trip pricing for entrance into the park that day, 03/29. This means that you will only be charged 1$ per person in the car, instead of a minimum $10 per car charge. You will only need to let them know you are with Canyon Grove Academy at the entrance. Although you will not have a guide, you are welcome to enjoy any of the hikes the park has to offer. We hope this solution helps for this year, and are committed to booking more guided hikes for next year.
