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.

While outdoor activities are an opportunity for worldview building and other skills, it’s not all serious business. Students can practice their bouldering skills on the school’s indoor climbing wall, use GPS to navigate through the woods, or take the Friday Night Ski Bus to Mt. Spokane. Beyond our 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 students great adventures and opportunities to connect with their peers, with our planet, and with themselves.
