Our Students

Emerging adulthood is a time characterized by identity exploration, self-focus, instability, feeling in-between, and an age of possibilities. While this can be an exciting time of change and opportunity, many emerging adults struggle to find themselves, their passion, and their place in society. The manifestation of these struggles are often expressed through depression, anxiety, negative life patterns, and an inability to live life to its full potential.

We help Jewish emerging adults build resilience and overcome obstacles. Our Therapeutic Expeditions serve emerging adults 18-28 who may or may not have a history of mental health challenges, but who are struggling to find their way forward as they transition from adolescence into adulthood. Life challenges may include:

BaMidbar’s Therapeutic Expeditions are immersive 4-week experiences for young adults looking to jumpstart their future. BaMidbar uses wilderness and adventure-based experiences as a vehicle to promote self-reflection and community connection, while helping participants build a toolkit to face life’s challenges. BaMidbar’s program is crafted to simultaneously support and challenge each individual student, allowing them to discover who they are, who they want to be, where they want to go, and how they’re going to get there. Individual therapy, group therapy, and regular processing debriefs are woven into the program structure to give space for intentional reflection, learning, and growth.

Wilderness Environment

BaMidbar students embark on weekly masa’ot – wilderness excursions – where they spend 4-5 days in the backcountry challenging themselves in new environments, embracing the majesty of nature, and learning new skills in the great outdoors. Students typically spend Sunday through Wednesday in the backcountry on masa. Thursday is dedicated to adventure-programming, which can include mountain biking, climbing, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, or rafting. Activities are co-facilitated with an adventure specialist and a member of our adventure-therapy team.

Jewish Framework

At BaMidbar Wilderness Therapy, we meet every student where they are in their unique Jewish journey, and honor the roll Judaism does – or does not – play in their life. Using 3,000 years of Jewish tradition that speaks to the question, “What does it mean to live well?” BaMidbar students explore meaning, values, and purpose through a Jewish lens. BaMidbar’s program is pluralistic, kosher, and shomer Shabbat.

WEEK 1

Kavanah – Intentions:

During the first week of the program, students focus on the theme of Kavanah, goal setting, intentions, and autonomy in the wilderness. Students engage in backcountry skill-building that build self-efficacy, through a 3-day backcountry masa (excursion). Students also have a day of equine therapy, and begin to set goals with Clinical Director Nick Magle Haberek, in individual therapy sessions.

During the first week of Launch Month, students also share their personal narratives. There is a text in the Zohar (Zohar Va’era, 2:25b) that tells us when the Jews were in Egypt, they lost the ability to express their own stories. During that time, the Jewish people were literally slaves to another person’s narrative. When the Jewish people left Egypt, they spent forty years in the midbar. The midbar is a wilderness, but there is a second meaning that comes from the same Hebrew root – דבר – to speak. The Jewish people went into the midbar to find their voice, create a fresh identity, and write their new narrative as a free nation. While at BaMidbar, we want students to have the chance to write their own narrative – to redefine how they view themselves, reevaluate their capabilities, and rediscover their vision for a brighter tomorrow. In Week 1, students begin this process by formally sharing their Personal Narratives with the group.

WEEK 2

Yirah – Awe

During the second week of Launch Month, students explore concepts of Yirah, fear and awe. Yirah, often translated as fear, also means awe.

Students explore fear and awe in the context of a safe environment and supportive community, while challenging themselves physically on a 5-day backcountry masa (excursion). Students also learn fundamentals of nonviolent communication (NVC), and push their limits during a day of climbing.

WEEK 3

Kesher – Connection:

Through the lens of Kesher, connection, Launch Month students spend the third week of the program exploring the multifaceted nature of their relationships with themselves and the people around them. How can we love ourselves? How can we develop and maintain caring and compassionate relationships with others? What does it mean to be independent and interdependent, to ask for help and give help in a group environment? Students continue learning somatic awareness skills, and embark on a solo experience.

BaMidbar solos consist of 24 hours of solitude, each student having their own campsite spread out around our basecamp property. During this time, students are solely responsible for their shelter, fire-making, and cooking meals. Solos are an experience with incredible potential for students to reflect on their journey and see what physical, emotional, and mental challenges arise for them while in solitude. The week culminates with a joy-filled Shabbat, celebrated at the Ramah in the Rockies basecamp.

WEEK 4

Kehillah – Community

During the final week of Launch Month, students synthesize lessons learned through their experience, and explored how they will bring those lessons into their home community. They explore the role of community in their time at BaMidbar and in their life outside the program, and learned strategies for building and sustaining positive social support networks outside the program. Students design transition plans to aid in their journey onwards from the program.

The program culminates with a day of adventure therapy, where students overcame fears, reached new heights, and challenged themselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Application

Applications are completed and submitted through our online client portal, Theranest. You can begin the application by clicking the following link: https://bamidbar.mytherabook.com/account/signup

Once you have created your account at Theranest, you will be prompted to fill out demographic information. Please do so, and then click the link “Complete Intake Forms.” You will have several sections to complete. You can save and return to your application at a later time by logging in to your account.

A complete and accurate application is necessary for BaMidbar to be able to evaluate and make a timely determination of program suitability.

Your application account will become your parent portal. Because of this, the parent/guardian assisting the potential student with the application should be the person to sign the online application. Students will sign paperwork at intake.

WINTER BREAK PROGRAM

Wait, you want me to camp in Colorado in the winter?
BaMidbar offers a three-week version of our Therapeutic Expeditions, for young adults seeking an alternative winter break experience.

December 22nd, 2019 to January 12th, 2020

Join us this winter break. BaMidbar uses wilderness and adventure-based experiences as a vehicle to promote self-reflection and community connection, while helping participants build a toolkit to face life’s challenges. BaMidbar’s program is crafted to simultaneously support and challenge each individual student, allowing them to discover who they are, who they want to be, where they want to go, and how they’re going to get there. Individual therapy, group therapy, and regular processing debriefs are woven into the program structure to give space for intentional reflection, learning, and growth.

During BaMidbar’s Winter Break program, students stay in a combination of heated huts, yurts, and teepees in the backcountry, and sleep at Ramah in the Rockies’ retreat center, Beit Kesher, while at basecamp.  Winter provides a unique opportunity to engage in snow-based adventure therapy activities, like cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and winter camping. Students learn perseverance and personal potential while challenging themselves in a new environment, and lessons of personal responsibility are quickly and fully integrated into their everyday living, as they manage their comfort in the great outdoors.  Safety is the highest priority of BaMidbar’s staff, and all staff receive extensive training in facilitating safe and meaningful winter experiences.
