June 11-14 - Overnight (4 full days / 3 nights) Teen girls, ages 13-16, (incoming 8th-10th grade) $799- all inclusive
Teen Girls spend 4 day and 3 nights on the stunning southern Oregon Coast, with amazing days of adventure, connection, challenges, down time and making lasting memories. Brookings, our jumping off spot, is the perfect place for teens to take a break from chaos and business of life. Thus camps allows girls to drop the demands and stress and social expectations of daily life- and move beyond comfort zones through serious adventure, while feeling the support and connections of friendship. Challenges are specific to reflect each girl's own personal journey. Surfing, river floats, swimming & boogie boarding, thoughtful reflection time, working as part of a team, or having to spend a quiet moment alone with self- these are just some of the ways we ask girls to show up and learn a little more about themselves. We seek the space just outside our comfort zone, with plenty of downtime to process and work in community!
Themes weave throughout our time together- from exploring healthy relationships to dropping the mask to boundaries to self care to to independence and accountability. Meals are made by the girls, together. Food is always healthy, tasty and mostly organic. All activities are guided with caring intention. We’ll stay in a vacation rental overlooking 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!. In collaboration with South Coast Tours LLC (kayaking & river float). Meaningful & Memorable!
Activities May Include:
River Tubing Float, Kayaking or Stand Up Paddle boarding
Redwoods & Coastal Forest Hiking
Circle & Journaling
Incredible Art to reflect the process
Cooking & Baking & Possible Farm visit
Swimming & Sunbathing

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.
