CAMPUS LIFE

Nestled in the limestone bluffs and hardwood forests of southeastern Minnesota, Stringwood at the Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center sits on 80 acres of natural woodlands overlooking the scenic Root River.

The modern campus facilities are climate controlled and feature a superb indoor rock wall, an air-conditioned dormitory and 2-bedroom suites with private bathrooms, a spacious dining hall with meals prepared from locally sourced ingredients, and spectacular views.
