Summer Camp that focuses on peaceful conflict resolution and community building

Our goal is to develop and operate a camp that provides outdoor camping and community living experiences in a Quaker setting. We encourage spiritual outreach and grown as campers and staff encounter themselves and each other in cooperative efforts and solitary moments. Because we believe that the Light resides within each of us, we respect every individual without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, handicap, national origin, or sexual identity. We encourage experiences which reflect and educate about the traditional Quaker testimonies of peace and non-violent conflict resolution, simplicity of living, stewardship of our resources, equality and breaking down barriers while living life with honesty and integrity. Through both service and work, we seek to strengthen our community by promoting cooperative activities which are fun and which improve self-esteem and self-determination. Our camp and conference center provide a gathering place for people from Meetings, families, schools and other organizations. Here, we expect all who come to find a new closeness with each other and with the world around us.
