October 7 – 9 Family Camp Weekend
Catoctin Quaker mp (Thurmont, MD)

Family Camp Weekends at Baltimore Yearly Meeting Camp Properties offer us all a chance to come and enjoy our beautiful camp properties at a special time of year. Individuals and families are invited to come and enjoy the camps for a day or for the weekend. This fall, we will have a program coordinator at each weekend who will plan camp-type activities for Saturday and Sunday mornings, as well as Saturday afternoon and evening. These may include things like playing in the creek, a crafts project or hiking around one of the most precious places on earth. There will also be plenty of work projects to do! Work projects offer people with all kinds of skills the opportunity to enjoy some meaningful and satisfying work! We will enjoy meals together, have time to explore and even spend some time around a camp fire in the evening. Come and enjoy a camp experience, give the gift of your time, participate with children in activities and find yourself rejuvenated.

October 8 – Friendly Sing-Along
Frederick Friends Meeting (Frederick, MD)

Who said Quakers don’t sing? Frederick Friends Meeting invites all those who enjoy singing and fellowship to join us at 9:30am. We will enjoy a wide range of music: from songs from the Friends hymnal to karaoke camp songs and pop rock. And the day will include “soulful singing” and guitar-accompanied favorites as well. Bring your favorite easy-to-eat finger foods for the potluck lunch. Child area will be available if requested by September 30. Contact Susanna Laird at SLaird4444@gmail.com for more information.
