Quaker Camps








Quaker Summer Sleep-Away Opportunities for Kids

Quaker camps across the US are another form of ministry with children and youth, and one where many young people -- Friends and friends -- experience Quaker community. We'll be doing a series of posts with links to camp websites on the QREC Facebook page and adding this information to the QREC website as we assemble it. Registration for some begins in early December and some fill their spaces fast.

Most Friends Camps are affordable and provide a range of activities. Thanks to Michael Beer for assembling this list.
