L-Dub Students Only
Lake Washington Girls Middle School’s outdoor program is one of the unique ways we offer our students opportunities beyond the classroom.
The scope of our outdoor education is expanding as we look for more opportunities to support the whole student. Our trips range from novice to advanced, and all expeditions expose our students to new environments and new outdoor and leadership skills. The outdoor program at LWGMS uses the principles of Leave No Trace in teaching girls the skills for enjoying the backcountry and the outdoors. We cover all areas of outdoor education including basic first aid, water safety, cooking, map reading, and navigation in order for our girls to develop skills in environmental stewardship, self-confidence, self-sufficiency, community building, and leadership.
