The Children’s Program provides opportunities for children in grades K-5 to gather for worship, fun, fellowship, learning, and service; we endeavor to form lifelong bonds to community, to God, and to the Society of Friends.
The program year begins with Annual Sessions in July, our residential week of fellowship, worship, and the larger Quaker Family of PYM in community. Other programs during the year include two “Family Overnights” at Quaker Camps (January and May), one-day programs at Continuing Sessions (November and March), “Community Playdates” (as scheduled), and Quaker Family Meetups that gather families with children of all ages for a Saturday afternoon three times a year in different regions of PYM. More on the “Events for Children” page!
Participating in the Children’s Program gives children and parents language, tools and activities to use at home and in their local meeting. This program offers resources for families, and networks of families to grow in the Light together. Check out our event list to see all our program events for this year!
Volunteer with Children & Families Programs
Our volunteers are essential to residential and longer programs, such as Annual Sessions and Continuing Sessions. Volunteers can take the role of teacher, supporters, and assistants, workshop instructors, craft leaders, worship leaders, song leaders — you name it! We are always searching for Adults and Young Friends (High School) to share their light with our youngest Quakers. Learn More.
