Learn. Discover. Lead.


The Rites of Passage Institute has over 25 years of experience developing and delivering programs throughout Australia and the world. Our mission is to help all people and communities thrive. To achieve this vision, we have created programs surrounding wellbeing, leadership development and personal development, to suit all ages, organisations and communities. The Rites of Passage framework is embedded into all of our transformational programs and is the driving force behind our exceptional results.

Our Programs

Camps

Our camps are designed to help young people become more responsible and resilient whilst strengthening family relationships. They cater to pre-teens all the way to adulthood (7-17) to be shared with a parent, step-parent or mentor. Our camps are held at the purpose-built facility in the Byron Bay Hinterland and all electronics are removed ensuring a completely immersive bushland experience.

Camps

Leadership training

We help individuals grow to become experienced and authentic leaders, and inspire leaders to become talented facilitators. Our leadership training will help you design and run your own high-impact program to allow your people to harness their full potential.

Student workshops

Our school programs complement regular academic education to bring out the best in young people. School communities are the perfect environment to implement the Rites of Passage model as a part of the culture. By doing so, schools create lasting cultural change that will not only inspire today’s young people but enhance the system for generations to come.
