Are you looking for a fun way to encourage the important elements of the Scouting Program in your troops?  Look  no further...Come and check out how much fun you can have in a cornfield.  You will be installing both teamwork and camaraderie, while telling your troops to "Get Lost!" The MAIZE is a three-acre human puzzle, carved into a cornfield, that contains more than one mile of twists, turns and dead ends.  It provides a challenge while participants employ navigational skills, and teamwork while also having FUN!  Most participants spend an average of one hour trying to maneuver their way to the correct exit. Scouts are provided with a "Scouting" passport to help them find their way, while testing their knowledge of scouting facts.  In order to get an idea of what kind of obstacle a maze can present, take a look at the farm website at www.sewardfarms.com.    


The discounted rate for scouts is $8.50 (which includes Maze Ticket and 3 activities of choice; scouts cannot use any coupons towards their admission price)

Scout patches can be bought separately for 50 cents.  One Leader Free. Leaders and Scouts must be wearing uniforms or a membership pin in order to receive the discounted price.  Chaperones and siblings can go to the website and print the $1 off coupon, which can be used towards their full price admission tickets.

There is no need to make a reservation unless you have 50 or more scouts, or you need to reserve a fire pit.


Troop Checks Only.  To expedite your ticket purchasing please have head count and collect money ahead of time.


OPEN:  Saturdays from 10 a.m. -  9 p.m., September 12 - October 31
