The 2019-2020 Children’s Program
Note: All children need to have a Medical/Permission form filled out when registering for overnight events (Family Overnights, Annual Sessions). This will be on file all year and is good for all events from Annual Sessions in July to the following June, when there will be an updated form due.
December 14: Quaker Family Meetup at Birmingham Meeting, West Chester, PA; An afternoon of fellowship with other PYM Families! We’ll start with a celebration of multigenerational community, and then children will play and be in community with their peers, while people who are parents, grandparents, and caregivers are invited to worship sharing and fellowship together. And snacks. There will always be snacks.
Looking ahead . . .
January 11-12, 2020: Winter Family Overnight at Camp Onas in Ottsville, PA; Family overnight is an intentional village for the purpose of being a family of Friends. These one-night events are designed for family schedules: the fun starts in the afternoon on Saturday and we’re heading home before lunch on Sunday. Join other families at Camp Onas for a one-night sleepover with lots of fellowship, games, communal cooking, hot cocoa and bedtime stories, and Giant First Day School on Sunday morning!
- March 28: Spring Continuing Sessions and one-day Children’s program (Westtown Meeting/Westtown School)
- April 18: Quaker Family Meetup at Abington Meeting; An afternoon of fellowship with other PYM Families!
- May 2-3: Spring Family Overnight at Camp Darkwaters in Medford, NJ
July 29-August 2: Annual Sessions 2020 at the College of New Jersey! Children and their Families gather for community, fellowship and worship, and to explore our work and witness as Quakers. Our largest gathering with the PYM body is a 5-day long residential gathering each year in the summer. Children’s Sessions for rising K-Grade 5 infuses First Day School and Summer Camp with workshops, stories, art, and music. Loving child care is available for the littlest Friends, infant to age 4 (including rising PreK). Annual Sessions is also a time for Families to be in community together in the Family Neighborhood.
