Vision

"Teaching and uniting others through purposeful experience, exploration and excitement!"

Gretna Glen promotes outdoor education to its fullest potential by using the outdoors as our playground, classroom and teacher. We use the experiential learning philosophy, where students learn by doing. Our trained and educated facilitators lead students through individual and group activities, stories, role playing, songs, discussions and more.

Every program at Gretna Glen is tailored to the goals and learning objectives of the group. We contact you individually to discuss the contents and schedule of your program. Groups can focus on Leadership and Team Building, Environmental Education, Faith, Recreation, Outdoor Living Skills or any combination of these.

We make great efforts to design a program specific to your desired outcomes. Programs can be one, two or three days long. If you choose to come for one day, there can be 4-5 one-hour class sessions; two days has six class sessions; and three days has 10 class sessions.
