For a quick check-in:

Chaperones
All chaperones are admitted free of charge with student groups pre-K through high school with 20 or more paid student admissions.
We require one chaperone for each group of 10 students. At America's Stonehenge, chaperones are the key to a successful tour. In order to encourage parents to participate we do not charge for chaperones with a group of 20 or more paid admissions. It is important that students stay with chaperones at all times. Please make sure that parents read our Chaperone Letter prior to your arrival.

Bad Weather Cancellation
America's Stonehenge rarely closes due to bad weather conditions. If school has been cancelled due to weather conditions, or if you have decided that the weather would make your trip unenjoyable, please call us before 8:30 am at (603) 893-8300 and leave a message on our answering machine. We do have a limited number of umbrellas for your group to use. Because of the high volume of school groups in the fall, we are unable to reserve rain dates. If you do need to cancel because of the weather, we will work with you to reschedule your trip.

Food
We have a limited snack bar consisting of candy, soda, water, and trail mix. It is suggested that students bring a bagged lunch. We do have a picnic grove where lunches may be eaten.

Gift Shop
Our gift shop has a great selection of items appropriate for student budgets. Please ask chaperones to accompany students into our gift shop.

Payment
Payment by cash, business check, or credit card is expected upon arrival. If you plan to pay by check, please make it payable to "America's Stonehenge."

Tour Options
Boom Box Tour: Portable group audio tour using a boom box. The chaperone will be in charge of the boom box, which will be played out loud so that all students will be listening to the same material at the same time. This tour allows for group discussion of the material presented at each stop. This tour is available for all ages, though the material covered may be too in-depth for the youngest visitors. Recommended for grades 4th and up. This option takes roughly 1 1/2 hours for the tour section of your visit.

Chaperone-Guided Tour: This tour is chaperone-guided (self-guided). We will supply our tour guide map, which covers all stops on the tour. This map is meant to be either read aloud or independently by the group. This tour is available for all ages. Recommended for grades 3rd and under. This option takes roughly 1 hour.

If you are not sure which tour is most appropriate for your group, please feel free to call us at (603) 893-8300. It is also possible to mix tour styles to suit your students' learning styles.

Archaeology Dig
Our non-sensitive dig pits are available for reserved school groups. Students will dig in a grid and use our archaeology tools to excavate various artifacts. This is an educational and fun hands-on activity. Some of the "artifacts" that students may uncover include arrowheads, polished rocks, fossils, bones, pottery, shells, and more! Students are allowed to take home any polished stones, arrowheads, and stone tools that they find. Students spend approximately 45 minutes in the dig pit. The dig pit is only available for preschool through grade 7. A minimum of 20 paid student admissions are required - no exceptions.

Activity Worksheets
We offer printable worksheets to be distributed in class and completed during a tour of the site at America's Stonehenge. Please visit the learning center for these teaching accompaniments. If there is something you would like to see that we do not currently offer, please let us know so that we can incorporate it into our program.

Alpacas
Our alpacas are here for your enjoyment. Students can meet and learn about these fascinating animals.

Orientation Film
Before touring the site, we have students watch a 15 minute informational video in our theater. This video helps students to better understand what they will be seeing on our site.
