EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION RATE ENDS MARCH 31!
The Camp Swatara gathering bridges the community of Young Friends and 6th-8th grade Quaker and Quaker-friendly folks! These two programs (MSF and Young Friends) occur within the all-ages Caln Quarter retreat weekend at Camp Swatara, and are open to everyone across the Yearly Meeting. We’ll open with games and worship sharing on Friday night, and on Saturday everyone will have the opportunity to hike the rock pile and part of the Appalachian Trail (though there will be an alternate activity for those who do not want to hike). Saturday will continue with workshops and community with Caln Quarter, finishing the day off with singing at the traditional bonfire (weather permitting). On Sunday morning both MSF and YF programs will join together for a bridging ceremony, in which current 8th graders will be welcomed into the Young Friends program and 12th graders will be welcomed by Young Adult Friends, followed by closing worship with Caln Quarter.
