Farm Field Trips

Calypso’s field trips provide students a chance to experience life on the farm through fun, hands-on activities involving Alaskan farming, boreal forest ecology, and folk arts.

Now scheduling for 2022!

Our seasonal, place-based field trips can be geared toward students of all ages and interests. Whether your group is interested in local boreal ecology, gardening and food production, animal husbandry, aquatic invertebrates, fiber and nature arts, or any other aspect connected to our web of life, there’s something to explore and learn at Calypso!

We can cater to a large variety of subjects and grade levels. Feel free to contact us about creating customized field trips to fit into your educational curriculum!

In 2022, we hope to phase back in larger-group school field trips for students in Pre-K through 12th Grade! Teachers are encouraged to get in touch! We will also still be offering small-group field trips throughout the season, perfect for homeschool groups, families, childcare facilities, community groups, and more.

Please make note of our current covid-19 policies for field trips, found below this form.


  • Please note: we require at least 1 adult chaperone to attend per 8 youth participants.
  • If selecting Taste Testing or Wood-Fired Pizza, please select at least one other alternate choice as we may or may not be offering those two themes in 2022.

COVID-19 INFORMATION: We know that COVID-19 will continue to impact our communities this season. We will continue to monitor the situation in Fairbanks and make final decisions regarding safety measures closer to specific session dates, however, our current policy is as follows:

Masking is required in all indoor spaces, such as the animal barn and greenhouse. Outdoor masking is generally not required, however: in order to keep our programs accessible to all, especially those who are immunocompromised, we will require masks outdoors if warranted based on the needs of the group.

We will do our best to communicate with field trip groups throughout the season to let you know of any changes to our programs or policies. Thank you in advance for your understanding!
