Faith in Living & Doing

Education

In recent years, Canadian Yearly Meeting under the guidance of Education and Outreach Committee has developed educational materials for Quakers that will also be of interest to persons who want to learn more about Quaker practices and processes. This material can be found in the Education section, and may be used with permission from Education and Outreach Committee.

Other Quaker learning materials include audiovisual recordings of lectures and study groups, as well as the pamphlets and other offerings of the Quaker Learning Series.

Quaker Book Service regularly stocks books about Quaker thought and activities, national and international.

Researchers interested in Quaker material can find material at the Quaker Archives held at Pickering College, Ontario and at Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre, Birmingham, England.

The Canadian Friends Historical Association acts to preserve and communicate the on-going history and faith of Friends (Quakers) in Canada and their contribution to the Canadian Experience.

 

 

Young Quakers

Quakers are ‘Young Friends’ to age 18 and ‘Young Adult Friends’ to age 35, and are found in Meetings across Canada.

To find the young Quakers in most meetings, contact the Meeting in your area under Find a Quaker. Check out the YOUTH area of this site, and also try our Young Friends Website.

Canadian Friends Service Committee

Founded in 1931, Canadian Friends Service Committee (CFSC) addresses the peace and social concerns of Canadian Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends.

Rooted in our Quaker faith, CFSC is guided by a vision of a world in which peace and justice prevail, where the causes of war and oppression are removed, a world in which the whole of Creation is treated with respect and where individuals and communities are freed to reach their fullest potential.

Camp NeeKauNis

2012Dining HallCampCamp NeeKauNis is a Quaker camp on the shore of Sturgeon Bay, (off Georgian Bay) near Waubaushene, Ontario, 130 kilometres north of Toronto. Programs for people of all ages offer an experience of caring and sharing in the spirit of Quakerism, in worship, play, work, and reflection. We welcome both children and adults as campers, either on their own or together. Camp can be a joyous and rejuvenating time for an adult, and an experience a child will treasure for life.

The facilities and programs at Camp NeeKauNis are the result of the volunteer efforts and contributions of F/friends over more than seven decades. Programs for families, children, young adults and mixed groups are offered in a series of camps which provide opportunities for relaxation, recreation and spiritual growth.

Each camp is staffed by volunteers and paid lifeguards.
