Welcome to Rite of Passage

Supporting healthy adulthood

For you?

The father-son relationship has a huge impact on how teenage boys develop before, during and after puberty. We have experience with adolescent behaviour and facilitate father-son camps and weekends in which we support boys in their growth to healthy adult men. During these programs we use a modern form of a ‘Rite of Passage’.

Our programs are for boys from 9 to 18 years old with their fathers (or other male person). The boys grow by having new experiences, playing games, story telling and facing challenges. The dads learn about parenting, connecting with other men and communication with their sons. 

Do you want to strengthen your father-son relationship, give your boy more confidence and help him to make the right choices in his life?

Why a Rite of Passage?

A Rite of Passage is a recognition of moving from one phase in life to the next. It’s a moment of change and growth. We focus on the transition of boys becoming young men, a development with a big impact for the rest of their lives.

As a man you have to act differently than when you’re still a boy. Stepping into healthy male adulthood is a process that can’t be supported by a father (or a mother) alone. It requires a group of elders who help the boys with their respect, love and life experience.
