Children’s Program at Continuing Sessions
November 5, 2016
Continuing Sessions is a new way for our Yearly Meeting to gather as a whole community. The children’s program will engage with the themes of the larger community while taking advantage of Westtown’s beautiful campus.
Welcome to the Children's Program
PYM’s children’s program is formulated on the concept of Servant Leadership- ensuring that the children’s spirit and leadings can be followed through the simple and direct teachings of Quaker process. In addition, there is a focus on developing the capacity of Friends who work with kids, and the family unit as a spiritual community.
The Children’s program supports Quakerism as a practice for the whole family, and community that includes all types of families.
Family overnight is a one night sleepover for the families with kids K-5th grade. There is multigenerational activity for the whole family, a dinner together, free time to play, bedtime stories, Giant First Day School, worship, a chance for adults to spend time with other parents. Family Overnight is an amazing chance to spend time with our Friends community in joy and sharing. Learn More.
We call our volunteers Friendly Adult Presences (FAPs), and without them none of our program would be possible. We are always searching for Adults and Young Friends (High School) to share their light with our youngest Quakers. Learn More.
