August 11 - August 17

The Summer Program at Holden Village includes opportunities for learning, relaxation, and fun for all ages. From bowling and backpacking to weaving and worship, there is something for everyone. You can learn more about the variety of things to do here.

We have an exciting line-up of interdisciplinary teaching faculty this summer! Check out this week’s presenters here.

Abriendo Caminos

El programa de Verano en Holden Village incluye oportunidades de aprendizaje, relajación y diversión para todas las edades. Desde jugar boliche y hacer senderismo hasta tejer y enriquecer su vida espiritual, siempre hay algo para todos. Usted puede obtener más información sobre la variedad de cosas en las que puede ser participe aquí. Esta semana contará con programación bilingüe en conjunto con los miembros de la comunidad latine de Holden, incluida la Copa Holden, tamales hechos por la comunidad y una fiesta al final de la semana. Si está interesado en registrar un grupo para la semana de Abriendo Caminos, comuníquese con registrar@holdenvillage.org.

This week will feature special, bilingual programming in partnership with Holden’s Latine community members, including Copa de Holden, a meal of community-made tamales, and a week-end fiesta. If you are interested in bringing a group for the week of Abriendo Caminos, please contact registrar@holdenvillage.org.

If you are not Latine, this week offers opportunities to learn from Teaching Faculty in Spanish and English, participate in bilingual Sacred Space, and appreciate and celebrate Latine culture with Holden’s Latine community members. We ask that you be open to “homework” before your visit to expand your intercultural skills. With Holden Village’s affiliation with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), we also ask that you become familiar with the ELCA Latino identity, the ELCA Latino Association, and the ELCA Latino Ministry Strategy, as well as Latine communities in your neighborhood in advance of joining for this special week.

Holden Village is a community where your questions are valued and encouraged. Most programs led by visiting teaching faculty occur during the summer months. However, Holden also invites faculty to teach sessions for special events and retreats throughout the rest of the year.
