The Southern Oregon Coast is the perfect place for girls to meet adventure, cultivate new friendships and have some fun! Whether it's surfing along the crescent city waves, kayaking in the mouthwaters, riding horseback along the beach, river snorkeling, jumping into rivers that run through old growth, or just opening their hearts to conect with new friends, your girl is sure to have an amazing time! Expect her to feel a little challenged- but held and supported in a loving and nurturing environment. We seek the space just outside our comfort zone, with plenty of mellow time to process and be together! Girls will cook together, create beautiful art, enjoy quiet reflection time in their journals, hike old growth & coastal forests, make jewelry and set daily intentions- then bring it all back at the end of the day with a sustaining circle and plenty of laughter. Food is always healthy, tasty and mostly organic. All activities are guided with caring intention. We’ll stay in a spacious rental, accomodating all the girls near the river and the ocean- with all the great amenities, including kitchen, showers, nearby woods & beach access, spacious deck, grounds for outdoor games, and inside meeting rooms, and even a hot tub! Our guided adventures (surfing, kayaking, SUP, or river snorkeling) are always in collaboration with South Coast Tours LLC, a local professional outfitter and long-time friend! Meaningful, Sweet & Magical!

Tracy John has worked with my middle school aged daughter for the past several months and I can't begin to express the profound gratitude I have for her and for the Flipside program. At such a pivotal time for young girls, Tracy offers a strong and compassionate adult role model outside the home. For those of us trying to expose our children to as many positive examples of living as possible, and yet still holding on in the way that parents naturally do, Flipside offers both safety and adventure. I also love that Tracy tackles real topics and offers the girls a safe environment to express themselves, all the while gaining confidence. It's been a true blessing.
