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

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

The Velveteen Rabbit

October 26, 2018

“Real isn’t how you are made, but it’s something that happens to you.” Based on the award-winning children’s book by Margery Williams, this world premiere musical follows the journey of a toy rabbit on its quest to becoming real. As a gift to a boy, the Velveteen Rabbit lives in a nursery surrounded by modern, mechanical toys. The rabbit is made to feel plain, but soon learns that there is much more to being “real” than outward appearance.

1) This is a school matinee and BYU has requested that we only allow one “home educator” per family. I realize that this is unfortunate for us; however, this has been a problem for them in the past and we don’t want to be uninvited next year.

2) They do not allow children under 5 or over 12.

3) This production is sold out so I will not be able to get anymore tickets.

Thank you for your understanding.
