What Others are Saying...
“Quality outdoor learning experiences for students, teaching a greater awareness of and appreciation for the natural world and each other.”
I've been taking groups up to Shoshone Mountain Retreat since the camp first started in 1998 and have personally seen this program evolve and refine into a wonderful enrichment and culminating outdoor education program for my sixth grade students.
The level of quality is sustained from the outdoor education experiences to the physical challenges through the meals and rustic accommodations. It truly is the complete package!
The sixth grade students here at Sagle Elementary look forward to this great outdoor adventure known as "Shoshone Mountain Retreat". Parent volunteers always leave pleasantly surprised at the level of involvement that the Shoshone Camp staff take with their groups. It makes their job, along with the participating teacher's, that of a tour guide from activity to activity. It's a wonderful chance to see and get to know students in a safe, comfortable, natural setting with energetic and enthusiastic group leaders provided by Shoshone Base Camp.
It is a wonderful program that I strongly recommend, either in the fall to begin your year as a team building activity, or in the spring as a great culminating experience to celebrate your school year.

I look forward to bringing other school groups to Lutherhaven and hope to do it twice a year rather than only once. I think the amount of growth I saw in my students for one overnight trip makes me wish we came earlier in the school year and more often!

I wasn't sure what to expect coming to Lutherhaven for outdoor education. It was an amazing experience and I left with more than I came with. I learned it really isn't "all about me." Thank you Lutherhaven!

This is the second year that I have taken the leadership group from our school. The value of the program is ten fold. I have students from last year that came back and told me it was one of their most memorable experiences as a fifth grader. The students in my class have used what they learned in the program and have made connections on what is being taught and learned in the classroom. Make your reservation now!
