The Crossing Rite of Passage can be done by a father and son but is also designed to be experienced by a group of men and boys, in groups of five to seven men with a similar number of boys.  The Mentor's Manual includes additional material for the Mentors to discuss and apply the lessons to their own lives through three Mentor Preparation Lessons.  It also includes detailed instructions for the outdoor Adventure Challenge and the Initiation into Manhood Fire Ceremony.  The Mentor's Manual and Young Men's Manual are full of outlines and questions to be discussed by the men and boys.
