About Us

Committed to Excellence in Outdoor Learning!

Lutherhaven has been helping young people adventure and learn outside for 70 years.

Our Outdoor Education programs provide public, private and home school groups with engaging, hands-on sessions taught by knowledgeable instructors so that students go home with a better understanding of our natural world, equipped with skills in communication, group dynamics, problem solving, math, science and goal setting. The trip is also a great way to build a stronger school or classroom community.

Some schools come for a day, but most overnight one, two or more nights. Every program is customized to meet your classroom and student learning objectives. Our classes are tailored to meet your curriculum needs and are also being revised to meet Next Generation Science standards.

We Value

Quality

We’re committed to providing the best learning experience for every student, listening to teacher and parent feedback to continuously improve the quality of our programs.

Outdoor Learning Experiences

We’re committed to “no child left inside.” Something lasting and healthy happens when a child encounters the outdoors. We believe the best learning occurs when the heart, head and hands are all engaged through natural outdoor experiences.

Teaching

We’re committed to providing the best staff instructors in the Pacific Northwest: servant-leaders who believe passionately in what they teach and safely care for each student.

Greater Awareness Of and Appreciation For the Natural World

We’re committed to helping students exercise their sense of wonder to strengthen their understanding of inter-relationships in the natural world.

…And the Inter-relationships within Each Other

We’re committed to helping students develop personal character: a deep sense of appreciation for the uniqueness of each person, a respect for one another, and a growing desire be a servant-leader and give more than receive. Students also learn interpersonal skills such as communication, trust and positive peer interactions.

"This experience really impacts some of our students who have a poor family life. They are so excited to be given the opportunity to experience "family" and what it means for others to look out for you. "
