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.

Coming Soon


In preparation for Session 2 of Innovations we are offering TWO FREE PARENT WEBINARS to introduce our Family History class that will be part of our session 2 line up of classes. Please join us for both webinars. These will be excellent – even for those whose students are not attending Innovations.

Creating a Strong Family Culture
Taught by Charlotte Barnes**
With so many voices competing for the hearts and minds of our family members today, there is an ever-increasing need to root our family in their amazing past. When our children know from whom they come, they know who they are, and they don’t have to look in unpleasant places for identity. Learn what you can do, say, and display that will help your household create a strong culture of family history.
If you can’t make those times we will record the webinar and have it available for one week after the live presentation.
Webinar Presenter Bios:
*Shenley Puterbaugh is the founder and CEO of Inspire Family History. She was inspired to love family history when her mom told her stories and helped her diagram her family tree when she was a child. Then, as a teenager, that inspiration turned into a passion. For the last 17 years, she has spent countless hours researching, interviewing relatives, digging through old boxes and records and sharing what she has learned. While homeschooling her 3 children, Shenley and her husband, Brett, regularly incorporate family history into their curriculum. She teaches family history classes and webinars for adults and children. Besides doing family history, Shenley enjoys hiking in the mountains, playing tennis, baking and reading.
**Charlotte Barnes is the author of the book Turning Little Hearts – Over 90 Activities to Connect Children with Their Ancestors. In addition to researching and writing about her own ancestors, Charlotte has traveled around the country to share her passion for telling ancestor stories to children in fun and engaging ways. Her house is full with six little children, her yard is full of chickens that lay delicious eggs, and her freezer is full of bagels from her husband’s wholesale bakery.
