Tides and Ridgelines mark the transition between childhood and adolescence. These programs help young people and their parents prepare for both the challenges and gifts of puberty. Both programs are held outdoors and bring together boys and fathers (Ridgelines) and girls and mothers (Tides) or another significant adult in their life – grandparent, mentor, family friend.
Growing up can be disorienting, especially when transitions from one developmental stage into the next go unmarked. These programs offer opportunities for young people to be seen and celebrated in these important changes and also offer space for caregivers to reflect on the changing nature of their roles. We believe this kind of support for a family and an individual’s development is an important part of building a healthy community and healthy culture.
This year, these programs will be held over a weekend in June (Friday – Sunday) with two nights at the Springhouse campus. Details for the overnight will be provided on registration.
Tuition: Our Tides and Ridgelines tuition is $500. The default payment schedule is $500 paid on registration. No one is turned away for lack of funds. Schedule a conversation with Chris Wolf to determine your program tuition.
