Northland College is committed to lifelong learning. Our adult programs offer an exceptional variety of experiences from nature journaling to geology of Minnesota’s north shore, a nature yoga retreat, and more. There’s something for everyone, including non-credit and credit options.
Our location on the south shore of Lake Superior makes an outstanding backdrop for our unique enrichment programming. Several retreats and workshops will take place for the first time at Forest Lodge in Cable, Wisconsin. This unique and historic estate is nestled among 872 acres of old growth forest in the heart of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest and situated along Lake Namekagon’s pristine shoreline. So join us this summer and expand your horizons. 2017 registration is now open.
