We apologize for any inconveniences, our facility just isn’t big enough (yet!) to host more 

What to expect...

When you arrive to our facility your group will be gathered & given our facility/field trip rules first. After rules (if you are joining us for lunch) you may set your group’s lunches inside our Activity Room. 

You will be led around to different stations throughout our facility, and EACH station will have their own set of rules. Please listen to staff/volunteers manning any station for rules before starting with the station. 

Some stations are set up for FUN (like our Jumping Pillow station), and some are set up for educational fun (like our Farm Animal Feeding/Interaction station). Stations can be seasonal as well, i.e. during our Pumpkin Patch we have a special Pumpkin station. If you have any questions about what stations are available please call, we would be happy to answer any questions you have.
