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 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.

*If you have any questions please contact

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