At Elk Mountain, We Take Physical Fitness Very Seriously
Physical fitness is an important part of any young person’s life. The physical and mental challenges of sports of all kinds can be important tools in learning how to push beyond self-limiting beliefs.
Throughout the school year girls at Elk Mountain have opportunities to participate in a number of activities; aerobics, self-defense lessons, dance, river rafting, and rock climbing are just a few. Winter often finds our girls snowboarding on Schweitzer Mountain and snowshoeing or sledding at the lodge.
Summer activities for our students may include horseback riding, biking, hiking, river rafting, rock climbing, fishing, camping and playing team sports.
Our location new the shores of Lake Pend Oreille is a great asset of Elk Mountain. We fully utilized when the weather allows, and the girls may often be seen boating and enjoying the beautiful lake.
A full range of high school team sports are encouraged during the school year. We also encourage a healthy and nutritionally balanced diet. Our staff works hard to provided this integral part of the girls’ physical fitness regimen.
