This rite of passage program is focused on development of willpower and wilderness skills leading up an experience of independent student travel where they must rely on each other and the skills they’ve learned. Within the enchanting landscape of mountains and rivers we will develop a strong connection to self to community, building sisterhood and confidence.

Earth Bound Expedition
Sun Jul 9 - Sat Jul 22, 2023
(14 days)
Ages 12 - 15

Offered in partnership with the Maine Local Living School

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to gather everything that you need to live directly from the Earth? On this expedition we will travel to the working homestead of Maine Local Living School in Temple, Maine, where systems of sustainable living are well established. We will spend the first week honing skills with axe and saw, carving our own bowls and spoons, tanning a hide, processing acorns into bread flour, and drying fruits and vegetables from the garden to take with us on an expedition into the surrounding mountains. Once on expedition we will live simply, gathering food and medicine as we travel, drinking from mountain springs, making fire by friction, and sitting around the hearth hearing and telling the stories that remind us of what it means to be a part of the Earth.

Boys Rite of Passage
Sun Jul 23 - Sat Aug 5, 2023
(14 days)
Ages 13 - 15

Boys Rite of Passage is open to male-identified and non-binary participants.

A call to all boys who wish to become the best that they can be! Join us in meeting a challenge that could change how you grow into a man. During this two-week expedition we will challenge our minds, bodies, and spirits while immersing ourselves in the beauty of the Vermont wilderness. Like the ancient school of the Samurai, we will wake early in the morning with exercises that build our concentration and dexterity, our strength, and our will. The coming expedition will test us. We will carry everything we need on our backs. The mountains and river valleys will be our guides, the wind and the rain our teachers. We will not follow trails but blaze our own way, relying on maps, compasses, and our intuition. At night, we’ll gather around the fire to share wisdom and tell stories. As boys crossing the threshold into manhood, we will experience ceremony, build a joyful community, speak from our hearts, and have an opportunity to be alone in the wilderness. Will you join us?

Come join the Bike Girls as we journey boldly into the wild places! We will form lasting friendships as we learn the art of mountain biking, with the Green Mountains of Vermont as our home. We will live, play, laugh, and learn the beauty of riding our bicycles, all the while experiencing the magic of living in nature, crafting with our own two hands, and sleeping under the stars. As a pack of wild and adventurous girls, we will practice biking skills, navigate the forest roads and single-tracks, and learn to fix our own bikes, taking home with us new skills as bike mechanics. In the evenings we gather around the fire to share stories and to set our intentions for tomorrow’s adventure. We will come away from this expedition empowered as females, ready to use our new riding muscles to face the challenges and experience the beauty of the world! No previous mountain biking experience is necessary and bikes are available for rent!
