For this Gathering, Quakers ages 13-35 will spend time together at Camp NeeKauNis from the evening of August 2nd to the evening of August 4th, when we will travel the short distance to CYM in Barrie as a group. This Gathering follows the expressed desires of Young Friends at the NeeKauNis gathering in 2017, and with the hopes of bringing even more Young Friends together.
Young Friends at the 2017 Gathering
We’re looking forward to bringing together many wonderful Young Friends and Young Adult Friends to share in each other’s light. This is a great opportunity for those who have not had the chance to visit Camp NeeKauNis before, and for those who have never been to CYM and are looking to make some connections before hand! We hope to rejuvenate the Canadian Young Friends community and continue to discern our collective path forward, asking what we want to be doing and what makes sense for us.
There will be a fluid program with space for us to engage in camp activities such as swimming, drama, games, community art creations, service — as well as activities that lead us to share questions and experiences of our Quaker faith. You are also invited to bring musical instruments so that we can share in music and song.
There is once again substantial financial support for those wishing to attend the gathering.

Quaker Earthcare Witness is working to bring together a coalition of changemakers of African descent who are working on the issue of water, and has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help make this happen.
The Coalition will gather in person for a special meeting at U.N. Headquarters in July with other movement leaders to learn together, share resources, and foster collaboration as part of the U.N. Decade for People of African Descent and the International Decade for Action – Water for Sustainable Development.
