Allow your students to burn off some energy exploring the park to find answers to a variety of Weather Trivia questions after a guided talk about how the weather affects us as individuals and on a wider scale (how does the changing weather affect local farmers?) and how to best prepare for the ever changing elements!

Cobb’s Adventure Park is a fully outdoor facility; because all of our activities are outdoors they are best experienced in good weather. Please watch the weather forecast for the week approaching your field trip date. If the forecast calls for poor weather, and you choose to cancel, we require at least 24 hours notice. If weather is poor on your booked date, we would be happy to rebook you for another date that works better! In the event of rain, snow, or hail when we are unable to operate and you are unable to rebook you will receive a full refund. If you need to cancel for any reason other than weather, we require 2 weeks notice to refund your deposit.
