Adventure Game Theater

Teen Rite of Passage

94% of cultures worldwide and throughout history have provided their adolescents with a Rite of Passage experience to help, not only celebrate their move from childhood to adulthood, but to create the psychological state change that is necessary for this maturation.   Using wisdom from other cultures, we've created an updated, modern version of this process, complete with the necessary 'threshold' experiences that allow this psychological healing and growth.

I feel grateful how anybody can walk through those doors and feel like family.

If you ever doubt the value of the hard work you do for young adults, remember that for every human you help there are a whole lot of other humans who receive the benefit. Including me! Thank you!
