Program flyer

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

Quaker Service and Art Camp is a combination and reconfiguration of our two previous youth camps. Campers will join Co-Directors: Juian Garrett and Nate Secrest, camp staff, and seasoned Friends to experience a multi-generational community through a variety of activities.

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 quilting with Kathy Richman, ceramics with Kindred Gottleib, creative movement with Jane Blount, and ukulele lessons from Jeff Richman (Jeff will bring some instruments 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.


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 with approval from your meeting. No one will be refused access to our camp because of lack of funding.
