Mt. Baker Snow Cave Trip

by Hannah

This past weekend, 24 adventurous seventh and eighth graders, five faculty/staff members, and one alum brought the beloved Mt. Baker Snow Cave Trip back to Seattle Girls’ School.
They demonstrated strength, perseverance, collaboration, and patience as they moved tons of snow over the course of the day. Taliesin, seventh grade, liked working with her group to build a comfortable and personalized snow cave with shelves. It was great to see all of the students working so hard for a day to reach their goal of having a cave to sleep in overnight.

Virgil, eighth grade, said, “It was very fun building caves and the van ride was actually amazing. I learned that I don’t like sleeping in snow caves because it’s drippy and wet.”

Located in the Central District, Seattle Girls' School is an independent school for girls and gender nonconforming students in grades 5-8. Our mission is to inspire and develop courageous leaders who think independently, work collaboratively, learn joyfully, and champion change.
