Conduct City Business Here   

The city of St. George is excited to offer outdoor recreation activities to our community through St. George Outdoors, also known as SGO. 


At SGO, we believe in the power of the outdoors to create moments of growth and learning that cannot be obtained in a traditional classroom or recreational activity. Our goal is to introduce youth, ages 8-17, to the benefits of outdoor experiences helping to build their self-confidence, perseverance, and leadership skills using experiential education in natural settings. We strive to communicate a strong appreciation for the natural world and our commitment to protecting the outdoors.  We do this through our current programs that include after school courses, weekend classes, and camps held during spring and summer breaks.

Join us for one of our upcoming adventures!


Due to the coronavirus we will be taking the following precautions with all of our classes:    
  • We will not be providing transportation for the time being.  All classes will meet at a different outdoor location in town and children will be picked up at the same spot.  Parents can choose to either meet us there or meet us behind the Rec Center and follow up to the location. 
  • All classes will be limited to 8 students
  • Any student or instructor who is sick or showing signs/symptoms of the coronavirus will be unable to attend class for at least 2 weeks.
  • We are asking anyone who has traveled outside of Utah in the last 2 weeks to not sign up for classes. 
  • All vehicles and equipment will be fully disinfected before and after each class.
  • Students and staff will practice social distancing by keeping a 6 foot distance between each other. 
  • Handsanitizer will be used during all classes. 
  • We will continue to monitor the situation and make needed changes.
