Field Trips & Events


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 immediate families enrolled in Canyon Grove only.  (Parents, 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. These are FAMILY field trips and students must be chaperoned at all times.

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.

*If you have any questions please contact Danyelle. (

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

BYU Planetarium

September 27 and September 28

A planetarium can be a wonderful place to introduce your children to science. But, bringing a young child to a planetarium when they are not ready for the experience is nothing but frustrating for everyone. Some children are more mature than others, and some shows are more technical than others. While we give recommended ages as a guideline, we leave it up to the parents to determine when their child is ready for a particular show. Before you bring your children to a planetarium show ask yourself the following.

  1. Is your child scared of the dark? Planetariums are very dark places. If your child needs a night-light, a trip to the planetarium is a bad idea.
  2. Does your child understand space and stars? It isn’t a good idea to ask anyone, let alone a small child, to sit quietly and stare at dots on the ceiling for nearly an hour. If your child doesn’t understand what is going on, he won’t enjoy a planetarium show.
  3. Does your child have a long enough attention span to sit through a 45min show? A planetarium show doesn’t have the plot and action typical of cartoons. If your child will sit and color for 45min straight, you’re probably fine.

Children younger than 4 are typically not going to like the planetarium, and will most likely make their displeasure known to all. Children older than 6 typically understand all but the most technical presentations, and will behave even if they are bored. In the 4-6 range, it depends on the show, the child, and the mood the child is in on that day.
