Lifelong Learning

The Mountain’s programs reflect our strong commitment to peace, justice and environmental stewardship. Our focus is to provide experiences across the lifespan that prepare and inspire people to work for the common good. Some of the programs and programming elements include:

  • MountainCamp has provided enriching youth summer camps filled with recreation, adventure and experiential education for more than 30 years. More>>>
  • Youth CONs place a strong emphasis on creating an inclusive, non-competitive environment where youth can develop a deeper understanding of themselves and form lifelong friendships. More>>>
  • Mountain-Designed Programs use both internal and external faculty resources to address pressing issues of our times.
  • In addition to Mountain designed programs, our programming staff work with retreat groups to offer highly-customized programs that are well-suited to the group’s objectives. Some of the retreat programming and workshops include:
    -Low and high ropes courses
    -Interpretive hikes
    -Environmental education and organic gardening 


"This has been a weekend of change, of reconnection to justice for me. The program inspired me to look for a new way (or ways) to join others towards justice and change issues."
