JOURNEYS

These distinct 10-week programs are based on cohesive curricula that help girls learn social and emotional skills, build confidence, realize the support of elders and nature, share accomplishments with a circle of friends, and help the world through a cause of their choosing. Girls earn ribbons of accomplishment, as set out in program activity books, and they are honored at a final rite of passage celebration. Girls may join a Circle at the start of each new Journey, which is usually in Fall and early Spring. Contact us to find out about upcoming Journeys!
