Our School Group Tour is often the first introduction some children and youth have to interacting with and learning about farm animals, including our alpacas. We thoroughly enjoy giving them an experience they will never forget that will instill in them a desire to continue learning about and caring about animals for the rest of their lives! These tours are tailored much as our Private Custom Tours; however, we do not require the non-refundable $100 deposit to schedule the tour. We offer this savings as a reflection of our commitment and mission to educate young people of all ages and backgrounds to practice the tenets of KLR—Kindness, Love, and Respect for our animals, our environment, and each other.
To schedule a School Group Tour, the responsible school official should contact us well in advance of the preferred tour date with the anticipated number of participants, including adults. We can accommodate up to 52 individuals divided between two buses; however, we recommend that multiple classes each have their own tour in order to keep the groups smaller so more individualized attention can be paid to the young people. We also find that the smaller the group, the easier and more enjoyable it is for students to interact with the animals.
Upon advance reservation, we discuss with you specifically which venues you would like to visit, the length of your tour (for up to 3 hours), and how to best accommodate students and their interests. We recommend that students bring picnic lunches to be enjoyed at some point during the outing as we have several locations on the farm which make great picnic spots!
A minimum of 10 individuals, including adults is required to schedule a School Group Tour. We do require an appropriate number of adults (dependent on the age and number of students) to participate in each tour to provide supervision. The cost of the tour is $15/person to be paid the day of the tour. Cash or check is preferred payment. We can accept all major credit cards; however, a $0.50 convenience fee is applied per person to cover credit and debit card merchant fees.
