Field Trips


You must read our Field Trip Policies before signing up for any field trip. Read all RSVP form instructions carefully. Do NOT submit multiple RSVPs for the same trip. You will receive a confirmation email that your form submission was successful. If you think there was a problem with your submission please use the link below for tech support.

All field trips are considered tentative until placed on the RSVP form below. Check back regularly for updates.


Make sure you provide the best email and phone number to contact you when signing up for a trip. Sometimes we have important last minute details about trips and need to be able to contact all who plan to attend. If your email is not entered correctly the system won't be able to send you the confirmation of RSVP.

Field Trip Policies


Before signing up please read the ECHO policy concerning field trips:

  • Please let us know, in advance, if you plan to attend. If last minute problems occur, please call us as soon as possible.

  • Should the field trip be canceled or other problems ensue, you will be contacted as soon as possible via telephone or email. If at all possible, check your email the night before or the morning of the field trip to verify that no one has been trying to reach you.

  • Attend field trips and other group events with your own children or send your children with another adult who will take responsibility for their behavior.

  • Arrive early. All tours begin on time.

  • Children and adults should listen when someone is talking. There are other times better suited for fellowship.

  • Respect age limits. The host sets the age restrictions. Do not bring extra children or babies without first getting permission from the field trip coordinator.

  • The safety and discipline of the children is the responsibility of the parent or guardian. In an effort to present a good witness to our host and to promote common courtesy among participating families, ECHO leadership has the authority to insist that the parent remove disruptive children.

  • Be generous with “thank you” and “please.”
