Rumshpringa

When an Amish teen reaches the ages of 14-16, they are given the option of going on Rumshpringa (“running around” in English). The teens leave their families and explore and experiment with the vices of the outside world, that are typically forbidden. After they are through, the teens can choose to either come back to their communities to be baptized to stay forever within the faith, or be shunned and live out the rest of their lives in the modern world.
