About Free Spirit Experience
Free Spirit Experience was established in 2015, by professionals in the Israeli at-risk youth treatment world: Tzahi Billet from “Nirim” wilderness residential program, Gal Farchi who also worked at Nirim, and Dr. Tamir Rotman from “Lotan’s Way” and other Israeli and American wilderness therapy programs. Together with Uri Hetz, an experiential educator working with international youth, we accumulated over 60 years of experience in the education, treatment, and outdoor therapy world. Free Spirit was dedicated to the memory of Sgt. Sean Carmeli working together with his parents and family. We created Free Spirit in order to make available the unique treatment philosophy developed in Israel to non-Israeli youth and young adults.
OUR AIM IS TO BE RECOGNIZED AS A LEADING INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM, OFFERING THE IDEAL, TAILORED PROCESS FOR YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULTS IN TIMES OF CRISIS AND GROWTH, PRACTICING AND TEACHING INDIVIDUAL AND COMMUNITY VALUES
