QUAKER SPRING 2023

Saturday, June 25 to Tuesday, June 28, 2022 at Oakwood Friends School, New York, USA


If you yearn for a more vibrant spiritual community,
If you hunger for more time for worship, reflection,
and deepening the connections among Friends,
come to Quaker Spring!

We invite all Friends hungry for spiritual community, of all ages, to spend time in worship, reflection, conversation, and play. We bring together Friends from all branches of Quakerism, to share what Spirit-led Quakerism is about at its core—and to experience it together. Quaker Spring summer gathering will be a “hybrid” gathering held from Saturday, June 25th through Tuesday, June 28th, 2022. Those taking part in person are invited to arrive for supper Friday, June 24th.
The schedule will include: Families are welcome at Oakwood! There will be childcare during the sessions between 10 am and 3 pm EDT. There will b e intergenerational activities such as field trips, games, and singing in the later afternoon and evening. If you have questions, contact us.

Friends are welcome to participate for whatever portion of the week they are able and feel led to attend. There will be other activities for those coming in person.

COVID rates vary across communities and the situation is constantly evolving.
