Reschedule/Cancel:
You may reschedule your field trip (if space is available). Field trips must be cancelled 2 weeks in advance.

Field trips that need to be rescheduled at the last minute due to hazardous weather or school closings.

Parents & Chaperones:
New for the 2018-2019 school year, we are allowing 1 FREE chaperone for every 10 students on the field trip. This is because this parent is asked by Oxbow and the school to help out with students during the program. This includes following rules and assisting with activities. All other parents are now asked to pay $5, regardless of the program they are attending.

There is no fee for teachers and bus drivers for the field trip.

Lunch Information:
After the field trip, your group may stay for a picnic lunch on our grounds. We have a total of six picnic tables and outside space as well for your use.

We do not provide lunch or have food available for purchase. If you have questions about having food delivered, please call our main line at 706-507-8550.
