Custom Programs

An overview of Custom Programming with Rite of Passage Journeys.

Do you ever wish that the pathway to adulthood had been clearer to you?

Do you ever struggle to help young people find their way – safely, healthily – into adulthood, in a culture with so many conflicting messages about what “being an adult” actually is?

Custom program participants playing a game

Whether you work in education, are a parent of a teen, or are involved with a program serving youth, Journeys’ practiced methods of creating custom rite of passage experiences can provide greater depth, impact, and richness of experience to the journeys of the young people in your life.


We offer educational and experiential custom programs that range in length from several hours to several weeks and are available for groups and families of all ages. We offer a flexible program design to meet your needs while providing a unique, engaging, and impactful experience honed over almost 50 years of delivering rite of passage experiences.

You choose the elements, we create the experience

Below are some of the program elements and outcomes that we specialize in and incorporate into our custom programs:

  • Embark on a Backpacking Wilderness Adventure to explore the epic wilds of the Pacific Northwest and set the stage for  deeper personal and group transformation
  • Build your Team and Grow in Leadership to highlight and transform existing group dynamics
  • Connect with Nature to get closer to the natural world and reconnect to your senses and creativity
  • Mark a Major Life Passage to bring more awareness, grace, and power to the transition
  • Celebrate with Community to invite your broader web of connections to witness and help integrate change and personal gifts
  • Go on a Solo Vision Fast in the Wilderness to connect deeply with who you are and what is to come.
  • Build Mentoring Connections to broaden and deepen your support network
  • Sit in Council  to level the playing field and create a culture of listening, vulnerability, and trust
  • Add Your Own - we strive to create unique custom offerings that fit your specific needs.

Previous custom programs include beginning of the school year retreats, a community coming of age trip for a group of friends, a backpacking rite of passage graduation program for middle or high school students, and training programs for youth organizations to offer their own rites of passage. 

Our team of facilitators has a wide range of skills and backgrounds to help create the perfect program for you. Check out their bios here

Change the life of your youth and community.
