June 22-29, 2019
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 we will focus even more attention on what living in community requires and what we can each do to foster the beloved community.
Each morning, multi-generational crews will gather to work on projects at Quaker Center, or travel to Santa Cruz to work at the Homeless Garden, and with Grey Bears bagging food for those in need. In addition to community service, the exploration of Quaker practices will take place throughout the day in town meetings, experiential learning, kitchen and cleaning crews, games and music.
Campers will also enjoy games, hiking around Quaker Center, and swimming, a variety of fun community building activities, singing, campfires, as well as whichever art course they choose to take for the week.
The art choices will include creative art, ceramics with Kindred Gottleib and ukulele lessons from Jeff Richman (Jeff will bring plenty of ukeleles to loan to campers who don’t have their own).
Come spend time with old friends, make new friends, and have a great time with the camp staff.
REGISTRATION IS SCHEDULED TO CLOSE ON JUNE 1st.
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.
