The community will gather together to send the teens off with blessings to Surprise Canyon. Streaming with waterfalls and luscious plant life, Surprise Canyon offers a change of scenery from the harshness of the desert, and provides a powerful setting for adventuring, exploring and practicing survival skills as a group, as well as a solo wilderness encounter guided by mentors.
Upon return, the community will celebrate and welcome the teens back to the village. They will be invited to share, infusing all with the lushness and vitality of their experiences. Teens will also have some integration time with their mentors and will be invited to participate in the offerings in the village.
All teens must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to attend Passover in the Desert. Our village is an amazing place for teens to leave behind the constructs of their busy lives and school, and enter into the midbar (desert wilderness) where they can adventure and gain perspective on their lives among vibrant and supportive intergenerational community.
