Education on the Farm
Fall Classroom – SOLD OUT

The Chilliwack Corn Maze is committed to teaching kids about agriculture and where their food comes from. Due Covid 19 and the ever changing structure of how children will be accessing their education, we have taken the time to assess the current school structure and determine the best roll out of our education program based upon BC guidelines.

We are excited to offer field trips for daycare, preschools, homeschool groups and both private and public schools.  Our aim is to provide students with a fun, hands-on learning experience where they can interact with agriculture in our community.  Our field trip is semi guided with lots of time to run and play.  

SOLD OUT- Currently our fall classroom is sold out! We would still love to host you on the farm. To be the first to know about our spring classroom or other educational opportunities please sign up for our educational e-newsletter at the bottom of this page.
