Foothills incorporates an active outdoor education program into our yearly curriculum. We believe that students benefit from a more intimate knowledge of the natural world, and that such knowledge can best be gained from first-hand experience. Such experiences will enlarge one's understanding of God and held establish an appreciation of the wonders of nature.
Middle grades outdoor education
Middle grades outdoor education takes the form of day trips out into God's nature where students examine different habitats and how people can affect the environment. In years past students have also participated in an overnight field trip to Sacramento's Rockin' Water Christian Camp where students experience gold mining, camp songs around the campfire, christian worship, and character building activities.
Junior high outdoor education
In years past students have participated in week-long learning experiences at Camp Wawona located in Yosemite National Park and at Leoni Meadows Camp in California's Gold Country. Junior high students also get to experience short back-packing trips and a combo spiritual emphasis ski trip to Mount Shasta ski park.
