Field Trips

Ever considered a field trip to a farm?

 

What better place to have FUN and LEARN than at the Echo Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch? Here’s how we can make your field trip unique:

Most groups start with a class photo at the Picture Station to share with parents and students.  From there students can rotate between the 4 stations roughly every 15 minutes which include:

  1. Farmer Bob – who will teach students about the growth cycle and many uses of corn. 
  2. Visit Miss Melissa Pumpkin Patch – learn about the growth cycle and varieties of pumpkins.
  3. Aunt Janet – Fun games based on what you learned at each station.
  4. Queen Bee – Will teach about the fascinating life of bees and why they are important.

Enjoy a self guided tour through the 8 acre corn maze with a farm facts quiz.

All regular activities are available during field trips including  the Large Corn Maze, Mini Maze, Straw Bale Maze, Tunnel Maze, Hay Bale Pyramid, Corn Crib play area and the Photo Station.
