Your Meetings Gift to Friends Camp Inspires the Next Generation of Quakers:

  1. In 2019, over 400 different campers at Friends Camp will be loved for exactly who they are and honored for the Light of God within them.
  2. Campers who might be one of the only young people in their Monthly Meeting get to meet other young Quakers at Friends Camp.
  3. Campers help lead daily Business Meeting and learn the ways of group decision making while living in authentic community.
  4. Young people who didn’t know about Quakerism before camp are more likely to attend a local Meeting for Worship after learning about Quakerism through Friends Camp—whether this happens when they are 17 or 37.
  5. Campers participate in un-programmed Quaker Worship twice each day, once in the morning and once in an evening “Vespers.”
  6. Everyone deserves a chance to go to Friends Camp, not just those who can afford it without help. Your gift makes Friends Camp possible for families with low incomes!
  7. Campers and staff at Friends Camp engage in programming around racial justice and other movements inspired by the idea that all people are equal in the eyes of God.
  8. Young adult staff members learn about Quaker leadership through clerking staff meetings, seeking Truth together, and feeling empowered by giving back to their community.
