Educational Field Trips
Thank you for your interest in bringing a group to Engelbrecht’s Orchard. We offer field trips/group outings on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays, from July-October, as these are the months we have fruit in production. Your can choose a morning visit (typically 10:00 a.m.) or afternoon (1:00 p.m.). Our fee is $5 per child (chaperones/drivers are free).
Our group programs typically include:
-- an experiential "tour" of the orchard with information “stops” with activities/clues to lead groups to the next info station
-- a group debrief and discussion of agriculture, growing seasons, and orchard basics
-- each child will get to pick a piece of fruit (type is dependent upon what is ripe during the visit -- peaches, apples, pumpkins)
We can easily accommodate groups up to 40 students. Larger groups will require a bit more planning on our part. The program works best when we break the group into five "teams" of 5-8 for the tour. Each small group needs a counselor/chaperone. The program typically lasts about an hour.
We can also accommodate groups wishing to have lunch during the orchard trip.
