Artemis Pack is a rites of passage program for kids who identify as girls or non-binary. We are a unique mix of witchy intersectional feminism, social justice and earth-based wisdom. In Artemis Pack, girls and non-binary kids learn to listen to their intuition and celebrate their wild, authentic selves.
We know that girls and non-binary kids face unique challenges in school and in life that can prevent them from building meaningful friendships, loving their bodies and taking leadership roles. Artemis Pack provides a sanctuary that nurtures and inspires, so that they are ready to take on the world.
Through seasonal celebration, song, storytelling and exploration of powerful female and gender non-conforming archetypes, Artemis Pack reminds girls and non-binary kids that there are a million ways to stand clear in their truth! It's a place to celebrate and laugh, a place to bring heartache about life or the state of the world, a place to become comfortable with their changing bodies. It is a place where magic happens.
