School groups, 4-H and other youth clubs of 12 youth or more can schedule a one-day, overnight or three-day program.

The Kettunen Center program activities are great activity options for family retreats and to help non-formal youth educators of 4-H clubs, church groups and other youth groups provide environmental and outdoor education learning experiences for youth during planned weekend and summer group activities. Our programs offer learning experiences in science, natural history, outdoor recreation, team building and life skills.

Schools know that experiential learning is the highest form of learning. Unfortunately, large class sizes and limited resources often hinder experiential opportunities. The school programs at Kettunen Center are built entirely on a foundation of experiential education, students (and our teachers) learn through doing. As a result, participants leave with new leadership skills and a stronger sense of self-efficacy.

The cost is on a per student basis with a reduced charge for teachers or adults needed to fulfill the program requirement of “pick up and teach activities” and the one adult for every twelve youth ratio. Contact the Kettunen Center program office for costs and available dates. We often have grants to reduce the cost of programs for local area schools.

Overnight accommodations are dormitory-style rooms with bunk beds and shared bathrooms. Camp meals are buffet style.

Camps are perfect for grades 3-12.
