We invite all Friends hungry for spiritual community, of all ages, to spend time in worship, reflection, conversation, and play. We hope to bring together Friends from all branches of Quakerism, to share what Spirit-led Quakerism is about at its core--and to experience it together.
Friends are welcome to attend part of the gathering. Please come for whatever portion of the week you are able and feel led to attend.
The "un-preprogrammed" daily program includes:
* Bible reading and study
* Waiting worship
* Afternoons free for rest, play, workshops, opportunities
for clearness & support for ministries.
* Evening time to reflect/search together for God's voice
around issues of concern to Friends arising out of the group.

Families are welcome. We have children's programs each morning and childcare available in the evenings. Children are also welcome to take part in ANY of our regular sessions.
For the first time this year we will be meeting in New England. Our sessions will be held at The Meeting School. There will be a variety of housing options, including staying in home-style dorm rooms on campus, camping, nearby meetinghouses & perhaps staying with Friends in the area. For more info on Rindge, free-time activities in the area & driving times to the school, click on QS 2011 site info.
New England Young Adult Friends are considering holding their annual YAF camp concurrently with Quakerspring this year. We will post information here on this site if this group makes a decision to join us at The Meeting School.
Costs for attending this gathering are very low. A guideline ($25-50/day/adult including meals for those staying in dorm rooms) is provided but no one should stay away because of limited means.
Registration forms for next summer's gathering will be posted on Quakerspring.org in the spring.
Please help us pass the word along about this gathering! Posters will be posted on Quakerspring.org soon.
