6th Grade Field Trip to Camp Highlands
During the first quarter of the school year, the 6th grade class goes on an overnight field trip to Camp Highlands. This field trip comprised of low-ropes and high-ropes elements is designed to teach students to work together and share ideas. It is on this field trip that the 6th graders proudly wear their bright green F.R.O.G. (Fully Rely On God) shirt to remind them to trust in God as they challenge themselves to complete the ropes course.

8th Grade Field Trip to Washington, DC
One of the highlights of the 8th grade year at Eastside Christian School is the fall trip to our nation’s capital. This is a three night, four day trip that students look forward to throughout their middle school years. While in Washington, D.C. students not only view the history that they have studied, they also form deeper bonds with their classmates. The agenda includes visiting all of the memorials, touring the Capitol and the White House, laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and visiting Mt. Vernon. Many of our alumni continue to speak of this trip as one of the best experiences of their lives.
