Monday Aug. 22, 9:30 am– Breautigam’s Farm
2795 Turkey Hill Ln, Belleville, IL 62221

$10 per peach picker – includes a brief introduction to the farm and discuss fruit production and learn how to pick the fruit correctly.  A ride on the wagon out to the orchard, a bag to hold the pick fruit and a cup of apple cider.  The group will be able to meet and feed the farm animals with Farmer Dan and then have some time to play in the Village.


This field trip is open for all ages. ONLY those picking peaches or possibly apples if they are ripe, will need to pay the $10.  If you have two children but only want one bag of fruit, then you only pay $10 (both children can pick and collect fruit in that one bag).

Tuesday Sept. 6 – French Colonial America

Linden House, 116 S. Main St. Ste. Genevieve MO 63670

TWO time slots to pick from: 9:30 am – 11:30 am OR 1pm – 3pm
Hands on History (preparing for winter)


$3 per person – Everyone pays – space is limited to just 20 people (includes adults) so we ask that just one parent from each family sign up.  This ensures that the spots are mostly filled by the children.  Some activities that have been included have been tomahawk throwing, scavenger hunts, relay races, exploring a trading post, forging for food and water, building a shelter.


This is for all ages. They do a wonderful job of including all of the children without it feeling too young or too old. We have had ages 3 – 15 on the same trip and all ages learned quite a bit and really enjoyed the program.
