The Most Fun You
Can Have On A Field Trip!
Schedule your class’ trip to The Rock Ranch for a mix of hands-on learning and fun in our 1,500 acre classroom. All of our seasonal field trips are conducted outdoors. Please come casual and weather appropriate, and be sure to wear good walking shoes.
All seasonal tours include a tractor wagon ride tour of the farm, playtime in the corn bin, a visit to Tiny Town (a village of themed playhouses), fun on our giant jumping pillow, and slide hill. Students will have an opportunity to shop at our Country Store.
Year-round field trips are conducted indoors, and outdoors. Taste the World, and Georgia Gemstone and Geology are held indoors with playtime outside afterward. Zip lining and rock climbing are available upon request for an additional cost.
