At Passover in the Desert the youth program emphasizes life in our integrated, intergenerational village. For ages 5–17 we will provide child and teen programming throughout the festival. and we also invite youth to enjoy the family-friendly activities that are part of the daily life of the village. As the festival approaches, our youth or teen coordinators will reach out to you with more information about the specific programs offered.
We will provide some childcare and family programming for tots ages 0-3, though we do require one parent or guardian to be accessible at all times when your child is in our care.
Note: Passover in the Desert can be a rugged experience
Due to the intensity of desert living, we highly recommend that each family with youth under the age of 10 bring two adult caregivers to ensure a balanced experience. We require families considering joining with just one parent/guardian to contact us directly before registering.
Passover in the Desert is an adventurous and, transformative experience for families who are aware, excited about, and prepared for true wilderness camping! It is ideal for parents and children with wilderness camping experience, as The Panamint Valley wilderness offers a real desert experience, including magnificent vistas, hot days and cold nights, intense wind, and occasional rain (alongside, of course, magnificent vistas, beautiful sunrises, and expansive starry skies).
