School Tours

Dear Educators,

tours

We invite you and your young learners (primary grades only) to play, learn, and grow with us this fall through our exciting educational tours! Come and spend a morning or afternoon at the award-winning Saunders Farm to discover the importance of farming in our community, to learn about growing pumpkins, and to experience the wonder of the world’s largest collection of mazes.

For over 30 years, our enthusiastic instructors have engaged thousands of young minds with interactive activities that emphasize learning through experience. All activities meet the requirements of the Ontario Curriculum in Science and Technology, Social Studies, and Language.

Make this the year you add our highly acclaimed, action-filled learning adventure to your Fall Curriculum program!
