At that time, Grade 11's hiked and repelled in the Montana Badlands, while senior students canoed on Otter Lake, along the Churchill River. Since then, outdoor education has become a popular co-curricular club that invites Grades 10 through 12 students who love the great outdoors and are willing experience something new to participate in special wilderness experiences. In the winter season, students camp out in Moose Mountain Provincial Park. In early June, the students of Luther College High School travel nine hours north to carry on the school's legacy of canoeing Otter Lake.
