Pay as Led at Young Friends Retreats

You may wonder, how much do retreats cost? 

Our fee structure is a version of the Pay-As-Led approach that New England Quakers adopted for Sessions several years ago. It’s about trust and abundance.

Families can pay less or more depending on their budgets–from giving more to support others to zero dollars—no questions asked.

For a typical weekend retreat, we offer these suggestions:

$45 is great if budgets are tight

$70  covers food, building usage, and supply expenses

$150 covers all related costs

We hope that you can give generously as your budget allows and that cost is never a barrier to anyone's attendance. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
