Junior Young Friends (JYF) are invited to a series of weekend retreats for 6th-8th graders. JYF conferences or “cons” are held at different Quaker Meetinghouses throughout the school year. Cons are a fun way to see friends from other Meetings or camp, make new friends, and retreat from the pressures of pre-teen life, while still developing skills around living in community and having a lot of fun. While Friendly Adult Presences plan and facilitate the program and meals at these conferences, JYFs are required to participate in cooking, cleaning, and making decisions that affect the group. Upcoming retreats are scheduled for November 5-6, 2022 and January 28-29, 2023. Registration $55; financial aid is available. For more details including an opportunity to receive an email when registration opens, visit the website.
