Grade 9 Camping Trip

Did You Know?

  • Students admitted to Luther College are not required to be Lutheran or Christian. By welcoming students of all faiths and religious backgrounds, Luther College enjoys a richly diverse student body.

  • Luther students, even though from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, have the opportunity to be part of tightly woven community of students, parents, alumni, teachers and staff. Typically 12% of the school’s student body originates from outside of Canada.

  • Through the A Time To Build capital campaign, we have added 46,897 square feet of space to Luther College High School, including the Semple gymnasium -  the largest high school gym in Regina.

  • The gym officially opened July 8, 1951. The Sunday afternoon celebration, attended by 1,500 people, featured speeches followed by an evening celebration with another 1,500 people in attendance to hear the Luther Choir and the RCMP Band.

  • The Tuck Shop for snacks was at the bottom of the south stairs going to what is now the cafeteria. The legendary beans in a cone were considered a healthier & cheaper alternative to what students purchased across the street at the Aintree.

  • The International Baccalaureate provides an enriched curriculum that both covers and extends beyond regular Saskatchewan curricula in its depth and detail. It emphasizes the development of the necessary critical skills that university-bound students need to master: reflecting, inquiring, thinking, analyzing and evaluating.

  • The choral tradition at Luther began in 1914. In addition to in-school performances, the choir has shared its ministry of music with many congregations across Canada and has performed regularly on local and national radio and television shows, at contests and festivals.

  • When the College was first looking to relocate from Melville to Regina, it considered land at College & Winnipeg, College & Broad, and 23rd & Albert, finally settling on 18 acres of land on the west end of property owned by Government House, now called Royal Street.

Hello future students! 

This week's blog post is all about the grade 9 camping trip. This is the 3rd year we have offered students this opportunity to get outside, engage with the natural world, build community and make lasting connections with each other. Students always have an amazing time at this outdoor educational experience!


Throughout this 2 day adventure students will participate in a range of outdoor programming including team building exercises, group wide games, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, outdoor cooking, hiking, beach games, and more. They will also learn about the Qu’Appelle Valley Ecosystem, learn about the history of the region, and learn some handy outdoor survival skills. Students will stay in cabin groups divided by gender and will have supervision and leadership from both Luther teachers as well as grade 12 peer support student counselors.
