Outdoor Education

Connecting to nature and beyond

The Outdoor Education program is a key part of a St. George’s School education. Through outdoor experiences, students experience the beauty of British Columbia, connecting to themselves and engaging in cooperative learning. The Outdoor Education program runs from Grade 1–12,  meeting kids at their developmental stage, and integrating their outdoor experiences to academic objectives. Through the program, students learn to problem-solve and increase their self-awareness.

In Grades 1–3, the program focuses on cultivating a connection to nature and helping boys’ become more comfortable in the outdoors. The primary programs include multiple half-day or full-day outings where students practice being prepared, getting dirty, and engaging with the world around them. Students participate in activities like intertidal exploration, nature walks, seeing salmon swim upstream, and tasting salmon berries in the spring. 

The Grade 4–7 program focuses on building community through camps. Students head off for two or three residential camps, learning outdoor skills such as canoeing, rock-climbing, and fire-building, while learning how to work in teams. There are also a number of day programs for these grades.
