For Youth, Young Adults, and Families

This year’s sessions schedule has been built on centering the needs of youth, families and young adults. The Family Neighborhood is a warm and welcoming hub for parents and young children. Our youth staff are eager to welcome children and teens into joyful, grounded community. Young Adult Friends will have times and opportunities for connection, too. Parents may choose to participate in a home group with other parents.

There is a deep yearning to strengthen connections between Friends young and old. Beloved traditions like Capture the Flag, the Contra Dance, and Coffee House will revitalize those. New experiments like opportunities for singing and lightly-organized games and activities outside the dining hall have been incorporated into this year’s schedule, too.

Sessions can be overwhelming. We encourage you to pick and choose what you do; to sit under a tree and visit with friends both old and new, to go for a walk into town, or to take a nap. Many Friends enjoy spending time at the pool - watch for the schedule in the morning daily news. 

The sections below contain lots of information on ways to participate and share your gifts and life experience.
