ACTIVITY

  1. TITANIC MURDER MYSTERY on April 14, 2018 (5P-1A)             
    1. Following a greeting by First Class Stewardess Sarah Stap, your tour groups will be guided and delightfully mislead through the entire event by an enthusiastic and colorful Titanic cast and crew. Each of your guests will assume the name of a real Titanic passenger (dress up is encouraged as it adds to the experience) as they begin their search for clues throughout the ship’s galleries. In the end, the Who, How, Where, When and Why Officer Garret was murdered will be revealed. But remember, the killer has been amongst your group all along.
    2. There will be dinner and shopping time at Branson Landing before the event

ACTIVITY:

  1. DOGWOOD CANYON on September 8, 2018 (8A-4P)            
    1. Dogwood Canyon Nature Park is a one-of-a-kind experience for nature lovers and adventure seekers of all ages. Covering 10,000 acres of pristine Ozark Mountain landscape, the park has miles of crystal-clear trout streams, cascading waterfalls, ancient burial caves, unique hand-built bridges and bottomless, blue-green pools. Call it a “ride on the wild side,” if you will. Step aboard our comfortable, open-air trams and explore the beauty of Dogwood Canyon on our 2-hour Wildlife Tram Tour (lunch included). You’ll wind through the canyon floor, past towering bluffs and waterfalls, making a stop at the Glory Hole (a magnificent blue-green pool where some of our largest trout reside). Then cross the Arkansas border where your tram may mingle with herds of American bison, elk, whitetail deer and Texas longhorn.

For trips that go out side the Northwest Arkansas Area students need to have a current Emergency Contact on file.
