Lifelong Learning

Fort Worden Lifelong Learning Center

At the heart of Fort Worden State Park lies the 90-acre Lifelong Learning Center campus.  Here, the juxtaposition of diverse, specialized education set in an environment steeped in natural beauty and rich history offers an unparalleled experience in the Pacific Northwest.

Thirteen partner organizations offer more than 1,500 programs each year, utilizing Fort Worden’s 56,000+ sq. ft. of meeting facilities.  A variety of former military barracks and houses offer program participants a wide array of overnight accommodations.  Miles of shoreline and forested trails provide a place for individual renewal and transformation enhanced by events and activities presented year-round at the Lifelong Learning Center.

Home to intensive experiences and educational opportunities in the arts, culture, education, historic preservation, environmental stewardship, and outdoor recreation, Fort Worden is perfectly equipped to engage participants of all ages and abilities.

Lifelong Learning at Fort Worden is a place for self-enrichment that encourages experimentation, promotes discovery and nurtures creativity in a magnificent setting.
