The Luther Glen Farm Outdoor School is a one to five day residential program that emphasizes agricultural education, sustainability and community-building experiences. Programs are available for students in preschool through college. Our classes cover several disciplines in the areas of natural, physical and social sciences. Students enjoy learning in a beautiful outdoor setting while growing together in community.
The Luther Glen Farm is home to livestock and plants, working together to demonstrate sustainable food systems. Throughout the year, students and retreat guests wake up to the sound of roosters crowing and are able to experience the change of seasons through the fresh produce on their plates. Day trips are available for church and school groups with individual programming designed to fit the needs of your group.
Our staff will work in corporation with your school to design a program that is best suited to the needs of your students. At the Luther Glen Farm, students rarely sit and listen to lectures. Our staff engage students in hands on experiments, gripping images and camp style fun. Our program incorporates California State and Common Core Educational Standards. For religious schools, Christian beliefs and principles are incorporated into each class.
Our instructors have college-level education, camp experience, specialized training in environmental education, and First Aid/CPR/AED certifications. They are carefully screened to meet American Camp Association guidelines and have experience working with children. Background checks are mandatory. Our staff strives to create an environment where students feel comfortable to learn and explore in an outdoor setting.
