Dear Amazing Youth
We’re here for you - let’s talk
Welcome to Fire & Flower! What are we all about?
We’re about being there for YOU
Honestly, this may be the hardest time in all of history to be a young person. Movies, music videos and magazines mostly only show skinny women and adults which is not how many of us actually look. So much happens on Snapchat, Instagram and other social media. You might have questions about crushes or how to fit in at school and no one to really ask.
It can be hard to feel good about yourself or know what to do.
Before our modern world, youth your age would do something special called a rite of passage about becoming young adults. You would get to spend time with other women and learn about being a woman/adult. All girls and non-binary youth would know about this their whole childhood and look forward to this special time (and be a bit nervous at the same time because it’s a big deal growing up!).
You are quickly becoming an amazing young person and we want to get to know you, explore this change together, and celebrate how awesome you are…all in a fun way.
In our programs you’ll meet other youth your age and form new friendships. You’re also welcome to come with a friend. It’ll be a space where you can be yourself and share whatever is on your mind. You can be real and honest. You can be silly or serious. We’ll hang out, play games, make art, dance, go into the forest, and visit some horses (for real!). You’ll also meet some women who love hanging out with you.
If this all seems weird to you or you’re unsure, that’s totally normal! We don’t have these rites of passage a lot nowadays so this idea might be new for you. Through this letter, we hope you at least know that we care about you and want to be there for you as you become a young woman/adult.
We know you’re incredible and would love to get to know you and have fun together. If you have any questions, please email us and we’d be happy to answer them.
We have weekly programs, 5-day spring break and summer camps, and a 6-month program where we hang out regularly and go on an awesome 5-day adventure in the summer. Check them out!
Hope we get to meet you soon,
The Fire & Flower Team
