What is Holden on the Trail?

Holden on the Trail is an experimental program to help keep Villagers connected to Holden Village and its rhythms, teach about environmental stewardship, and work together on the very trails we tread.

Holden on the Trail participants will venture out with tents as their lodging. Together they will hike, engage in teaching staff sessions and Bible study, volunteer with trail maintenance, and worship during a one-week, backcountry experience in the surrounding Railroad Creek Valley and Glacier Peak Wilderness.

Each group will consist of nine guests and three staff who are experienced hikers. The staff will include a pastor, a teaching staff member and a leader trained in Wilderness First Aid and trail maintenance. Possible teaching session topics may include theology and religion, ecology and environment, health and wellness, global studies and politics, and visual arts.

Participants should be in good physical condition with no major health problems.
