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?  The fields trips are for immediate Canyon Grove families only, unless otherwise specified.   Immediate family includes Dad, Mom, and younger siblings. An exception can be made if Dad is unable to attend and mom needs another adult to help with small children. These are FAMILY field trips and students must be chaperoned at all times.  The only exceptions are the Middle School specific opportunities when we provide an ES Chaperone.

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.

Please email with questions.

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


The Space Center is a wonderful program that reinforces what students learn in class within a Space Ship simulation! Sign-ups are available for Canyon Grove Distance Education Students and will offer a new mission each month.

Every Cadet is allowed one mission slot per month, as the same mission will be flown for this grade level for the entirety of the month. The simulation requires teamwork in that all participants must be able to problem solve together in order to complete objectives!

*Missions will be canceled in advanced if slots are not filled. Sign-ups will close 3 days prior to each flight. Doors will be closed and the mission will begin at the startup time as well as end an hour after start time. Please be on time, as there will be no room for tardiness!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email

As the play opens, a tempest-tossed ship is wrecked upon the shores of an enchanted isle whereon dwell Prospero and his lovely daughter, Miranda, alone save for Caliban, a deformed and brutish half man/half beast whom Prospero has enslaved, and Ariel, a dainty spirit of the winds and Prospero’s servant. After the ship is split apart on the rocks and as the tempest begins to subside, Prospero tells his daughter of his past life: Formerly duke of Milan, Prospero allowed his affairs of state to lapse in order that he could study magic. Eventually his dukedom was usurped by his wicked brother, Antonio, and Alonso, the king of Naples. The conspirators then set Prospero and Miranda adrift in a “rotten carcass of a boat,” where they would have perished except for a humane Gonzalo, who provisioned their craft with enough food and water for them to reach the island. During the twelve years of their exile, Prospero has perfected his magical arts, gained control of the various spirits and creatures that inhabit the island, and educated Miranda….
