Family Fun

Family Activity Weekends are now done for the 2017 season. Thank you. 

So much to do for the whole family!

If you want activities for those summer and autumn weekend days then bring the children and visit Cannamore Orchard. All Family Activities begin at 11am. 

 

  • Visiting the orchard store
  • Picking apples, or pumpkins
  • Walk through the orchard
  • Play in the Family Activity Area
  • Use the canteen facilities
  • Have a birthday party
  • Go for a wagon ride
  • Ride the cow train
  • Use the pedal cars
  • Try the different GIANT hedge mazes! 
  • Visit the animals

Duck Race

Children and adults will love racing ducks against one another at the duck race located inside the Family Activity Area. Here you will find 10 hand water pumps used to race your duck from one water tank to another. You might want to bring an extra shirt or towel just in case your fun results in some large splashes!

A-mazing Mazes

At Cannamore Orchard we have mazes inside the Family Activity Area as well as larger, green mazes, in the field.

Inside the Family Activity Area we have the dark maze (bring a flashlight if you’re afraid of the dark), the no left turn maze, the rainbow maze, and patio stone mazes.  For most of these mazes you need to think your way through, finding the exit by planning your route.  These mazes are all life size and you walk on or through them to get from start to finish.

The 7 finger board mazes are ideal for smaller ones.  These finger board mazes are themed on the orchard or the Spooky Wagon Ride™.  Using a finger, you trace your path on the grooved board from start to finish.

We have also planted 7 green labyrinths and mazes, which we hope to open in 2012. We have 2 mazes and 1 labyrinth growing from cedar trees, 1 maze using spruce trees and another maze with Nannyberry bushes. We also have a unique labyrinth using local Virginia creeper. For a more relaxing turn, our contemplative flower labyrinth allows for a slower pace.

Fun Rides

While at Cannamore Orchard on weekends, beginning Labour Day weekends and running until Thanksgiving weekend *(only on the Monday of Thanksgiving weekend), enjoy a ride in our cow train or on our wagon.

The cow train, which includes 15 unique cow shaped barrels, will take you through the orchard and back to the maze field.

The wagon ride will take you through the woods, to the strawberry and pumpkin field, into the maze field and through the orchard.

 

Pedal Cars.. so much fun!

Bring the family to the pedal car track! Here, you can challenge each other to see how many laps you can pedal around the circuit in our unique pedal cars. Pedal cars are like go-karts but without a motor. There are pedal cars for adults as well as little ones. It is not nearly as easy as you think, but it’s lots of fun!

 

 

Cannamore Orchard Museum

NOTE:  For 2016 the Museum is closed
as it undergoes renovation.

Located just outside the store is our learning centre.  On weekends our bilingual guide is available to show you around this building and to explain, demonstrate, and have you try out some of the materials located inside.  The learning centre contains artefacts and materials related to honey, apples, maple syrup, strawberries, cherries, chickens and eggs, and Halloween.
