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 descend the 30-foot 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.
But it’s not all serious business. Students can practice on the school's indoor 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. Summiting glaciated Cascade volcanoes, rock climbing in rugged Eastern Oregon, backpacking into Idaho’s mountain wilderness – Saint George’s Outdoor Program offers some great adventures.
The outdoor program at Saint 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.
CLASS OF 2017
Saint George's campus is full of bright yellow, orange and red leaves as fall colors hit their peak. See a Photo Gallery of some of the bursts of color around the school.
The 5th graders launched kayaks from Graduation Lawn to float down the Little Spokane River to the Painted Rocks last week. See a Photo Gallery of them floating down the river on a warm, sunny Oct. 7th before hiking back to campus.
Saturday, October 10th is The Lands Council's annual Reforest Spokane Day! Melanie Mildrew, SGS Director of Community Service Programs, says they have an ambitious goal to plant 3,000 trees in one day and need volunteers to make it happen. The project is at Marshall Creek and spans acres of beautiful farmland located between Cheney and Spokane that is undergoing a massive wetland restoration project. There is plenty of room to spread out and maintain distance, while enjoying the scenery and taking part in a transformative project. Get more information and sign up for a Volunteer Shift Here.
