Visiting School Groups Pre-Shopping

At SunWatch, we know that one of the most exciting parts of a field trip for students is to purchase souvenirs as mementos of their visit. We also know that group leaders’ time may be limited, and supervision of large groups can be challenging. To address these issues, SunWatch offers an alternative to individual shopping through Visiting School Groups Pre-Shopping.

Dear Group Leader:

At SunWatch Indian Village/Archaeological Park, we know that one of the most exciting parts of a field trip for students is to purchase souvenirs as mementos of their visit. We also know that your time may be limited and supervision of large groups can be challenging. So we would like to offer you an alternative to individual shopping. Our Pre-Shop Form* includes several affordable items that have proven popular with students in the past.

We recommend that this form be used in one of two ways:

  • Print the Pre-Shop Form* and provide copies of the form for each student to review and fill out with their parents. Collect each student’s form and money prior to leaving for SunWatch and give them to the Store Manager upon your arrival. Each student’s order will be individually bagged, labeled, and ready to pick up after your tour.
  • You may go over the Pre-Shop Form* with your students as a group and on one sheet tally the number of each item ordered, collect the appropriate amount of money, and turn in a class order at the time you arrive for your tour. The selected items will be bagged and ready for you to pick up at departure time.

We welcome individual shopping by your students. Please keep in mind, however, that your direct supervision is requested. For the comfort of all visitors a maximum of ten students will be allowed to shop at any time.

Thank you for planning to attend SunWatch. We hope to provide you with an experience that is fun and educational.

*Please note that all items on the pre-shop form include tax; exact amount is required on all orders, and no change will be given out on any order. Cash and checks are accepted. For more information, please call 937-268-8199.
