Come join us in a Galaxy far far away where you will learn the arts of the Jedi knights! Scavenger hunts, lightsaber play, Ewok villages and dark lords await you in the forests of Northernshire! Bring your skills and be prepared to increase your Jedi awareness as we role play in the Star Wars universe, complete Jedi missions and discover the mysteries of the galaxy!
Ages 6 - 14
Come spend one day per week out in the woods, engaged in community, the land, and the seasons. This program complements the traditional school week with a day outdoors in a nature-centered, spirited agenda guided by children’s interests and curiosity. It is also ideal for homeschooled children, offering them a chance to connect deeply with other children, themselves, and the natural world.

New Year's Retreat
Come enjoy the beauty of the Vermont winter and connect with your ReTribe community while you release what is no longer serving you from your past year and create New Year's intentions. Rather than a "Rite of Passage," this week will be a community building, healing retreat, and New Year's celebration.
Ages 13 - 19 plus alumni
Now we can feel the ReTribe community year round. This is a once a week teen group where we hold space for each other to share deep emotions, and learn skills such as mindfulness meditation, relationship skills, nonviolent communication, emotional processing, goal setting and follow through, and decision making.

Throughout history, cultures worldwide have provided a means for people to access non-ordinary realms for healing and spiritual growth. Breathwork is a means of inducing an altered state of consciousness through full and connected breathing. This breathing serves to release blockages, both physical and emotional.
