Welcome to Holden Village
Over the course of 50 years, Holden Village has been transformed from a copper mining town to a vibrant place of education, programming, and worship. Holden invites people of all ages to come and experience our rhythms, which inspire and equip travelers for a sustainable life of faith outside the Village.
Holden Village can no longer accommodate guns or game on Holden transports to or from Lucerne, nor are they permitted in the Village. For more information, visit holdenvillage.org/visit/hiking/ or email our Registrar.
Due to forest fire, the Pacific Crest Trail has been re-routed through Holden Village. For up to date information on trail conditions and closures visit pcta.org. For more information about the facilities and amenities offered by Holden Village to thru hikers CLICK HERE. Feel free to contact the Registrar with questions regarding transportation, lodging, or meals.

Glass Recycling Eliminated in Chelan
Due to the recent elimination of glass recycling in Chelan and the nature of Holden’s waste management system, we ask that guests bringing beverages into the Village opt for plastic or aluminum containers or take glass with you at the end of your stay to recycle downlake. Thank you for helping us minimize our negative impact on the environment!
