Outdoor Activities

Explore the great outdoors at
Saint George’s

Saint George’s stunning campus is the perfect setting for teaching students life skills through our Outdoor Program. They learn to cooperate while paddling canoes down the Little Spokane River, hiking through the state park land that surrounds the school, or helping each other scale our indoor climbing wall and the Dragon Crag in the woods above campus. Through it all they learn to cope with adversity, practice teamwork, and develop their leadership skills as they grow into responsible young adults.

At the end of each long day, it was fun to see students gather around the picnic table, laughing and enjoying themselves, reliving the day and looking forward to the next day.

But it’s not all serious business. Students can practice on the school's climbing wall or take the Friday Night Ski Bus to Mt. Spokane. Beyond the campus they can pursue school-sponsored expeditions into all kinds of environments. Mountain biking through Utah’s Green River canyon, sea kayaking around Puget Sound’s San Juan Islands, backpacking into Idaho’s mountain wilderness – Saint George’s Outdoor Program offers some great adventures.

The outdoor program at St. George's School has not only expanded my knowledge of what I am able to do outdoors and how to do it, but has also given me many favorite memories from the best experiences with the greatest friends that I could have ever asked for.
