About

This new retreat will give space and time for conversations about the physical and emotional changes happening in the bodies and hearts of our 6th and 7th graders.  We’ll talk about what’s cool, what’s confusing, and what’s really stressful.  Striving to live as a Friend is often in sharp contrast to our culture and media’s many conflicting and damaging messages around sexuality, gender, identity, and relationships. In our safe and loving community we’ll weave in a strong message about staying safe and taking care while also singing, playing games, eating delicious food and having a lot of fun.  Registration begins January 29.
