YOUTH RITES OF PASSAGE
For young men ages 14-16 and their fathers/guardians/etc.
July 23-29, 2023
South Fork, Colorado
The Youth Rites of Passage (YROP) are initiation rites that have been adapted and adjusted for teenage boys from Illuman’s Men’s Rites of Passage (MROP) model.
The preferred age range is 14-16, but we will consider ages 13 and 17.
These rites are intended to prepare each boy emotionally and spiritually for what lies ahead in adulthood. Through the use of trusted council, mythology, contemplative prayer, and simple ritual, the rites team and the elders will provide the structure and support for the boys to begin individuating away from the security of home and childhood, and step forward into a deeper understanding of their duty toward and benefits from the community that will continue to gather around them as men.
One (or more) adult males must accompany the boy: father, grandfather, uncle, surrogate, etc…
The fee is $150 per adult and $150 per teen boy.
To sign up, please email the coordinator, Andrew Rice at email@example.com.
By return email, you will receive an application and medical waiver which need to be filled out, signed and returned, instructions on how to submit payment, and directions to the retreat site.
