Field Trip Basics
School-sanctioned, scheduled field trips are free of charge for both students and chaperones, including home school communities.
Reservations are required, and are available on weekdays, excluding Monday. The park is closed in January and opens Friday-Sunday in February.
Please allow up to two weeks to schedule a field trip.
Lunch will add approximately 45 minutes to your field trip time. Brown bag lunches must be eaten in our picnic area or on your bus. Cantigny Park does not offer indoor dining options. Lunch periods must be requested ahead of time.
Arrival is scheduled for 30 minutes before your first program in order to disembark, leaving time for restroom use and a brief orientation.
Please be on time. Late arrivals will not be guaranteed their scheduled program. Your start time is clearly indicated in your confirmation form.
If you are running late or must cancel, call 630.260.8162. Late arrivals will not receive a complete program. Any group arriving more than 15 minutes past their scheduled arrival time cannot be guaranteed a program at all, and will be accommodated only if space and time are available.
If your program is canceled due to late arrival, your group can explore the park until your next program time. We ask your cooperation so that we may accommodate as many school groups as possible. If you must cancel, please do so at least two weeks in advance if possible.
