Fall School Tours

Book Your Field Trip Today!

An Educational & FUN Farm Experience!

Fall Tours at Rounds Ranch offer a hands-on, interactive program for children from pre-school to Grade 6.  All of our tours are designed to meet grade specific curriculum requirements.  Each tour includes a playtime in the our western playground “Ranchland” with a focus on physical activity and physical literacy (pedal cart racetrack, barnyard boxcar barrel train ride, petting zoo, western fort/playground with slides and zip-lines, and our corn-mazes/moo maze)

Our facility provides a large covered eating area with picnic tables for snack and lunch, separate public washrooms, and a drinking fountain.  School Field Trips are available mid September – November 1.

Teachers, EA’s and Special Needs Supervisors are FREE.  One parent helper per 5 students is FREE!  Teachers will get a LARGE pumpkin for their classroom.

JK to Grade 3 – Half Day Option #1

Rounds Ranch provides a wonderful setting for children to experience harvest time on the farm.  Students will. participate in a “hands on” investigation of the life of a pumpkin.  They will partake in an enjoyable educational wagon ride to the pumpkin patch where they will pick their own pumpkin to take home with them, straight from the vine. The students will have an opportunity to wander through the pumpkin patch and gain a further understanding of how pumpkins grow.  Their day will include time in the petting zoo area, interacting with our farm animals and time to enjoy our Ranchland activities.  At the Ranch, the students will experience a balance of learning and fun, making this outdoor experience memorable and relevant to your curriculum requirements.

JK to Grade 3 – Full Day Option #2

Option #2 includes the entire “half day option #1” but we add on our ever popular “LIFECYCLE OF THE PUMPKIN PLANT SKIT”, where each student will participate in a fun, educational skit as a means to fully understand the pumpkin from inception to harvesting.  Students build confidence

and self-esteem while participating in this activity – Learning through fun!

Grades 4 to 6 –  Half Day ‘Get Lost in the Maze!’

Our large cornfield maze offers a great opportunity for your students to learn navigational skills.  While in the maze they will be challenged to find the answers to 12 word puzzles, called “CornFUSIONS”, strategically placed throughout the maze.  Our wagon ride will take students out to the pumpkin patch where they will pick their own medium size pumpkin straight from the vine to take home with them at the end of the day.  Students will enjoy interacting with our farm animals in the petting zoo, getting physically active in our western playground “Ranchland” which offers a pedal cart racetrack experience, zip-lines and slides, barnyard boxcar rides, our Moo Maze and more!

Grades 7 to 8 – “Leadership”

“At Timothy Christian School, we feel it is of great importance for our grade 7 students to develop team skills and discover their potential gifts and talents as both leaders and team players.  Having traveled to Rounds Ranch the past two years, we have taken part in an excellent program that has challenged our students to discover themselves through thought provoking team building activities.  The students must work together as a team which includes following the leadership of their peers to reach a goal.  Often, the best learning comes from the failure of a task.  This provides the students the ability to analize, communicate and look for means to achieve the next task.  This is key in the discovery of their gifts and talents.  Thank you Rounds Ranch for a great program and see you next year!”
