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.

Teaching Faculty for the Week of August 12-18

Also during the week of August 12-18 is Holden Village’s annual Interfaith Dialogue Week, co-sponsored by the Treacy Levine Center.
Interfaith Dialogue Week will feature well-known faith leaders, theologians, peacemakers, and artists Rev. Terry Kyllo, Imam Adam Jamal, Rabbi Yohanna Kinberg, and John Noltner. These sessions will focus on building interfaith dialogue and help us learn and live together through the challenging times our world is facing, with discussions on rediscovering our common humanity in a time of anxiety and a fearful climate.

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!
