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 8–10, the program expands on self-propelled expedition skills. In Grade 8, students gain the outdoor skills needed for their adventures in Grade 9 and 10.  In Grade 9 and 10, students choose between a variety of self-propelled trips across BC which include activities such as canoeing, sea kayaking, or hiking. Grade 10 students also have the option to join the Discovery program – a cohort program that focuses on developing leadership skills and where boys often make memories that will last a lifetime.

Finally, in Grade 11 and 12, students are involved in the program in a leadership capacity, serving as mentors for our primary students.
