Eighth Grade Trip to Washington, D.C.
Each year, eighth graders head to historic and picturesque Williamsburg and Fredericksburg, Virginia and onto Washington, D.C. in early May. After an evening tour of Williamsburg and a tour of the Fredericksburg battleground and cemetery, they enjoy a 3-day visit to D.C. The highlight of the trip is often a photo opportunity in front of the White House or the Capitol. Other activities include a visit to Arlington National Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknown. Tour Guides add historic insight and narration to the experience.
Senior Class Trip to Costa Rica
CCS seniors and chaperones depart in mid-May for a week long trip to the beautiful country of Costa Rica. They enjoy the sights and sounds and people of the country, as well as the local cuisine.
During their stay, seniors enjoy the beautiful scenery, white-water rafting, relaxing in Hot Springs, zipping through the rain forest, playing soccer with the locals and touring museums and historical sites.
A portion of the trip is devoted to taking the gospel to the people of Costa Rica. The group focuses on impoverished areas that surround the city of San Jose where they share the "Good News" using the Spanish they learn at CCS. In addition, each year students participate in service projects to leave Costa Rica better than they found it!
