Our Collaborative Vision:

“To live in a world where communities engage in conscious rites of passage for their young people.”



Our aim is to equip and empower communities to create their own maturational rites of passage. At this point in our organisation’s evolution we are doing this by providing programs as authentic experiences and models of practice, and on the job training complemented with our “The Power of Ritual” training. communityritesofpassagecrop.com/training/


Our conscious, contemporary, and community focused rite of passage acknowledges the transition of children to young adults in the presence of their families and their community. We offer gender specific programs, and tailored programs.


Community Rites of Passage (CRoP) offers the Becoming Men program, and connected programs (see Programs) and training (see Training).

The Becoming Men program is a facilitated, camp based rite of passage. It’s for boys 15 to 19 years (the important thing about the entry age is that your boy has begun to mature into a young man) and involves the whole family. The purpose of the camp is to acknowledge and celebrate the beginning of the transition of your boy to becoming a young man in a respectful, engaging and exciting way in the presence of men who have learnt good things from their life journey.


Our program has a philosophy of nonjudgemental inclusion and participation by informed choice. Our processes are gentle and respectful focusing on shared experience and the incremental take up of responsibilities pertinent to individual participants lives. This happens in an environment of mutual admiration and support.

Our programs are nondenominational.

We can come to you and deliver our Contemporary Rites of Passage Information Session (1 to 2 hours depending on your needs) to groups of 6 to 60, or more!! Get in touch via this website or email/phone to find out more. communityritesofpassagecrop.com/contact/
