Fall is here and what better way to celebrate it than with a family fun outing to Eliada’s Corn Maze? Eliada’s Corn Maze is held annually and this year it is open from September 14th through October 23rd. Their hours of operation are Wednesday through Thursday from 9 am to 3pm, Friday through Saturday from 9 am to 8 pm, and Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm. Eliada’s will be closed on Wednesday and Thursday if there are no scheduled field trips on those days so be sure to check their facebook page on those days.

Eliada’s Corn Maze is a non-profit corn maze with 100% of its proceeds benefitting the children of Eliada. Eliada is a family oriented residential care facility dedicated to helping children and families in crisis. They are a full service entity that offers many things including psychiatric care for children living at Eliada, foster care and therapeutic foster care, day treatment where children living at home, in a foster home, or at Eliada attend school on campus instead of public schools to better meet their special learning needs, and transitional living and vocational training to older children who have spent their lives in foster care where they can gain culinary or technology work skills while learning to be self-sufficient adults.
