Program Details

Fire Circle is a program for ages 11-14 that weaves the stories and songs of Judaism and nature through fire building and ancient sacred skills. Our experienced Jewish educators guide the participants through forest and farm outdoor hands-on activities that build personal and community growth, self-awareness and self-confidence, and interconnectedness and responsibility to each other and the land.

Like a healthy fire, Fire Circle is the warmup to our Rite of Passage program. We integrate the rhythms of Jewish life and the Hebrew calendar with the cycles of nature and human development. Participants take part in Fire Circle until they are B’nai Mitzvot age. The Rite of Passage program will focus on the internal aspects of becoming B’nai Mitzvot and can serve concurrent to a B’nai Mitzvah or as a stand-alone experience. It will center on practices and experiences that connect all participants more deeply to themselves, Jewish identity, and the human and wild ecosystems in which they live.

Parents are invited to hang out in the Great Room at Hess House while their children participate in Fire Circle. There is internet, hot beverages, and a comfortable seating space. The program team will occasionally offer tours, crafts, and discussions during this time.
