Click on this packet for a detailed overview of our 2018 Fall programming. Fall Field Trip Dates are October 29 to November 16. Please note that our field trips are designed to accommodate the 4th Grade NC Curriculum Standards, but we will accept 3rd-5th grade students.

*Field trip programming is rain or shine. If Catawba County Schools close for inclement weather, we will close as well. If this occurs, we will reimburse your school or schedule a make-up date in the Spring.

Field Trips
Field trips are $15 per student. Teachers and administrative staff are free. Chaperones are $20. Chaperone passes can be purchased on our gift shop page:  We prefer to host a school’s entire grade level as opposed to individual classrooms so the kids can be exposed to several crafts and cabins. We have a minimum of 50 children and a maximum of 200 children per field trip.

Hands-On Classes
Hart Square offers specialized classes for students to learn old time crafts and trades when they visit Hart Square Village. Recent courses (pictured above) include “Corn Husk Angels and the History of Corn in the South” and “Canjo Making and the History of Appalachian Instruments.”

While at Hart Square Village, students will participate in a hands-on class, get a tour of a few of our original log homes, and observe an artisan at work. Please be in touch with us:
