Your generosity will help sustain a vibrant
network of transformative healing between
youth, adults, and the earth.
"I’ve been going to ReTribe for seven years, and they have been some of my happiest memories.
It creates a culture that I can’t find anywhere else. I’ve learned to make a fire,
walk stealthily, carve, and to respect knives and other tools."
Compassionate Human Culture
ReTribe supports youth and adults to become powerful, self-realized individuals who, together, will foster a “New Culture” built on radical acceptance and connection to self, others, and the earth.
ReTribe brings together staff with expertise in the four areas of play, psychological healing, nature education, and meditation and other spiritual practices, to create programming for all ages. Our values permeate our programming, both in what we teach and in how we act - sustainability, compassion and acceptance, and the joyful use of play and humor.
Why Your Support Matters
With a total contribution of $30,000, individual donors and grants made it possible for ReTribe to provide access to Forest School and retreat programming through scholarships for 57 participants in 2023.

"ReTribe has started a slow chip away at my anti-social shell of pain and fear closing me off from having and meeting amazing people. I feel like me again."
We have also received several wonderful in-kind donations to our teen retreats from many Vermont farms and businesses. These donations allow us to provide the best quality food while still keeping the retreats at a more affordable price for many families. It means so much to us to have the support of businesses in our community. Please contact us if your business is interested in partnering with ReTribe in this way. Here are local businesses that we receive support from:
Red Hen Baking Co. - Middlesex
Champlain Orchards - Shoreham
