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.
