Grade 9 Outdoor School

Did You Know?

  • Luther graduates have gone on to universities such as Harvard, Oxford, Pennsylvania State, McGill, Queen’s and other renowned educational institutions throughout Canada, North America and the world.

  • 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.

  • 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 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 first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!

  • The first LIT was held on January 31, 1953. That year it was a one-day tournament involving sixteen teams from Southern Saskatchewan. All preliminary games were played cross court, two games at a time.

  • 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.

  • Did you know there is a 3rd floor to the boy's dorm? It was traditionally assigned to upper level students who were more mature & responsible. Students who lived up there in the 1940’s confessed, in hushed tones, to having a radio when those devices were against school policy.

Grade 9 Outdoor School

We offe new Grade 9 students at Luther a chance to attend the Grade 9 Outdoor School. This outdoor educational experience will be a chance for students to build community and make lasting connections with each other. This will also be an amazing opportunity to engage with the natural world, learn some new skills, and have a lot of fun! 

Throughout this two 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 student counselors. 

We believe that the immersive setting of summer camp provides an unparalleled opportunity for new students to make friends and start their high school career off right! For more information on the social, psychological and educational benefits of summer camp take a look at the Canadian Summer Camp Research Project.
