Holden Village is a year-round, Lutheran family retreat center welcoming people of all ages, races, faiths and lifestyle. The village, originally a mining town, nestles at 3,200 feet elevation in the narrow Railroad Creek Valley within the boundary of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. Rugged, snow-capped mountains soar above the tiny village, which is surrounded by great fir forests and within hiking (or snowshoeing/skiing in winter) distance of alpine lakes and glaciers. The village is reached by boat on Lake Chelan. Up to 7,000 people visit Holden Village annually – at least a third of them volunteers who keep the village operating. Holden continues to host guests during the winter and seeks summer volunteers during a massive clean-up of the former mining site in Railroad Creek Valley.
