Wellness Programs

Overview

We partner with youth and young-adult serving Jewish community organizations to provide customized 3-10 day wilderness-based adventures.

Emerging adulthood, an age of possibilities, is a time characterized by identity exploration, self-focus, instability, and feeling in-between. While this can be an exciting moment of change and opportunity, many emerging adults struggle to find themselves, their passion, and their place in society.

Through wellness-oriented programs, BaMidbar helps all Jewish youth and young adults build resilience and thrive during this critical time period of life. BaMidbar offers alternative break trips, retreats, and non-immersive learning experiences.
