Our Programs

Rites of Passage Camps

As previous medical Doctor who was deeply disturbed by the high rates of harm that teenagers were subjecting themselves to Dr Arne Rubinstein (CEO & Founder, The Rites of Passage Institute) moved out of traditional medicine and into the field of mental health for young people. In doing so created a number of Rites of Passage camps and programs that act as preventative medicine for our youth.

Our range of Rites of Passage camps have been supporting families for over 25 years now. Not only are they designed to help young people become more responsible and resilient but they are proven to strengthen family relationships, which in turn strengthen communities.

We have programs that cater to pre-teens all the way to young adulthood, to be shared with a parent, step-parent or mentor. Click below to discover which camp is best for you and your children.
