iBme Teen Retreats

A one-of-a-kind experience for any teen, an iBme retreat helps teens reduce stress and cope with normal school, life, and social demands in a self-empowering way. An iBme retreat reconnects teens with their own natural confidence and ease — their inner spark. Through curiosity, they develop their powers of perception and capacity to understand their emotions and thoughts, skills that are valuable for them now and for a long time to come.

The basic ingredients of an iBme teen retreat? Mindfulness, community, nature, and fun.

Our faculty and staff

Our retreats are led by awesome adults with years of experience serving and working with teens, alongside their own longstanding mindfulness practices. iBme faculty and staff walk their talk in their professional and personal lives and devote themselves to creating a truly unique and safe container for all teens to be welcomed, be real, and be accepted — and have some fun (yeah, we do that too).

Tuition and Scholarship Information

We offer a sliding scale for our retreat tuitions and have never turned a teen away due to financial circumstances. To make this possible and continue to remain sustainable in as progressive and equitable way as possible, we rely on both families contributing according to their capacity and the generosity of our donors — at all levels of participation.
