TIPS FOR MAKING A RESERVATION
Use a computer, as the reservation system is NOT mobile friendly at this time. Firefox or Google Chrome browsers are recommended.
Know your date. Once you click on a tour time above, you will then choose a reservation date. The tour calendar is a working calendar so any dates and groups currently available will be displayed. Don’t forget to check your school calendar for holidays, non-student days, picture day, etc. and check those dates against the 2022/23 Jr. Farmer Tour calendar before making a reservation.
Prepare by having necessary information ready. Use the Farmer Tour Worksheet before selecting a tour time.
Keep a copy of the reservation application. You will receive an automated email with your copy of the reservation application. Double-check all the information is correct. This notice is NOT a confirmation. Your field trip date is being HELD. A final confirmation/teacher contract will be emailed to you once your submitted field trip information is approved.
Complete the contract. The tour coordinator will email the contract 2-3 months before your tour reservation date. The contract requires all attending teachers to read and sign the contract. Return the signed contract to finalize your reservation.
Watch for confirmation. Once the office has received your contract with all attending teachers’ signatures you will receive an email stating that we have received the contract and your Jr. Farmer Tour reservation is confirmed. (Note: Please call the tour coordinator a month before your reservation date if you don’t receive this.)
If you have any questions, call Centennial Farm at (714) 708-1619.
- If you need to cancel your reservation, please notify us at least 4 weeks prior to the scheduled tour date. Failure to do so may result in the school’s inability to book a future field trip.
- If Centennial Farm cancels your tour due to rain/weather conditions, schools will be contacted by 7:30 a.m. the day of their tour. After a cancellation occurs, the Centennial Farm tour coordinator will contact the teacher/field trip coordinator within 7 business days to reschedule the field trip.
- If your school cancels due to rain/weather conditions, you are not guaranteed the ability to reschedule due to space limitations. 24-hour notice is required in the event of a weather-related cancellation.
