Service and Art Camp flyer 2020

We welcome kids entering 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th grades for Quaker Service and Art Camp!

Quaker Service and Art Camp offers young people a taste of life in the remarkable redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Campers will join staff and seasoned Friends for a week of endeavoring to live out some core values of Quakerism. This year our theme will be: “Think Globally, Act Locally” – a phrase popularized in the 1970’s and used in the context of global environmental changes and challenges.  This theme also speaks to our Quaker values and testimonies regarding living simply, living with integrity and letting our lives speak.

We will focus on this theme through service to the Quaker Center, as well as the broader local community, and through our Art exploration.  Both will provide us with opportunities to learn and grow together.

Campers will also enjoy non-competitive games, hiking  Quaker Center trails, swimming, creek walking, and a variety of other camp favorites including singing, campfires, tie-dye and a trip to the Santa Cruz beach and boardwalk. 

The art choices include creative art, ceramics with Kindred Gottleib and ukulele lessons from Jeff Richman (Jeff will bring plenty of ukuleles to loan to campers who don’t have their own), and Theatre with Bob Fisher.

Come spend time with old friends, make new friends, and have a great time with camp staff!


COST is on a sliding scale from $420 to $560. A 10% sibling discount available for each additional camper registered. Additional scholarship funds are available. If your meeting has a Quaker Center Annual Pass, it can be used for one camper from each meeting. No one will be refused access to our camp because of lack of funding.
