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
This time of year, there are lots of eagles along the Little Spokane River. Upper School students can sign up to float the river on Friday, Jan. 29 at Noon by having their parents fill out the waiver on PowerSchool and emailing Melanie Mildrew. We will be floating down and walking back instead of using vehicles. Masks need to be worn while hiking back and are optional while on the river. See more details at US Winter Float Info on the Parents Portal/Bulletins page.
The 7th graders spent part of their Theme Day on Oct. 28 evaluating the health of riparian zones along the Little Spokane River. Then to finish their work, the 7th graders pulled scotch broom, an invasive species of weed, from the slopes above the campus. See photo galleries of them doing Riparian Zone Evaluations and Pulling Scotch Broom.
The 6th graders spent part of their Theme Day on Oct. 28 testing the quality of the water in the Little Spokane River by the Graduation Bridge. See a Photo Gallery of them at work evaluating the health of the river flowing past the campus.
