Teen Journey

Teen Journey is a transformational, experiential program for youth aged 13 - 19 in search of truth, freedom, and the power of inner guidance.


July 2 - 8, 2012


Theme & Focus

To stay consistent with the vision and mandate of Teen Journey, it is important for us to not only deeply and authentically connect as human beings, but also connect deeply as citizens of the planet - this means protecting and caring for not only each other, but for our planet. In light of recent global disasters and climate change, the impact of the depletion of the world's oil reserves and its consequences for the world economy and population, and our pressing need to live and lead more sustainably, this year’s focus will be on Who Am I as a Survivor and What is my working relationship with Nature? Conversations, activities and experiences will be focused on leadership, building community, stewardship and care for each other, sustainability, and exploring our relationship with our natural surroundings. We will learn tangible skills on how to become more resilient and self-resourceful, knowing how to meet our basic needs in the woods, and not only surviving but thriving. 

In 2012, Teen Journey continues the theme of Rites of Passage – the journey to a location in the heart of nature, connecting deeply with ourselves, each other, and with the wilderness around us. Ask yourself the question, “Who are you?” as you come into contact with the fire and the woods, and challenge yourself on the high/low ropes course and the days of adventure and challenge. Learn to survive and build in the wilderness, and make friends and connections that will last a lifetime. 2012 is a journey through the wilderness, and a journey to the center of your heart, mind and spirit.


The most important part of program design is activities around the theme of Rites of Passage (separation, building community, journey, return), as well as the all-important un-structured time!
