We are the youth group of Soma Eastside Church, consisting of both high school and middle school students. Sometimes, we gather together. Other times, we gather separately.

Regardless, we’re all family here.

summer trip - The escape

Due to Tyler's recent transition into the Youth Pastor role as well as some complications with our previously announced MS & HS trip to Salem, Oregon, we have planned a NEW TRIP that we're STOKED about!
The Escape 2018
WhenAugust 6th - 9th (leave 08/06 in the morning & return 08/09 in the evening)
WhereSpokane, WA and Couer d'Alene, ID
Who: Incoming 6th graders - graduating 12th graders. (MS & HS students will be separated some of the trip.)
What: A little bit of everything!

How many leaders will be on the trip?

It depends on how many sign-ups we have. We will have one leader per hotel room.

How will the sleeping arrangements work?

There will be one gender-sepcifc leader and up to four students in each room. Each age group and gender's block of rooms will be separated in the hotel's layout.
For example:
  • High School Boys' rooms will be located on the north end of the top floor.
  • High School Girls will be located on south end of the top floor.
  • Middle School Boys' rooms will be located on the north end of the second floor.
  • Middle School Girls' rooms will be located on the south end of the second floor. 
Overall, The Escape will be an opportunity for students to grow in their faith, build friendships with each other as well as their leaders, and have a ton of fun!
Cost: $345 with a $50 deposit by July 01 or $375 without deposit 
  • Scholarships are available upon request
  • Discounts for families of 2 or more MS & HS students
