Baltimore Yearly Meeting is the regional organizing unit for the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in the area of central Pennsylvania, Maryland, parts of West Virginia, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. It is through membership in a Yearly Meeting that individual Quakers become connected with the larger Quaker movement worldwide. "In fellowship, in deep listening, in waiting worship, in commitment to each other, it richly rewards those who embrace the challenge of being a Yearly Meeting Friend." (2011 draft Faith and Practice)

2017 Family Camp Weekend
Family Camp Weekends at Baltimore Yearly Meeting Camp Properties offer us all a chance enjoy our beautiful camp properties during the greening up time of year. Individuals and families are invited to come and enjoy the camps for a day or for the weekend. This spring, we will have a program coordinator at each weekend who will plan camp-familiar activities for Saturday and Sunday mornings, as well as Saturday afternoon and evening. These may include things such as 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 time around a camp fire in the evening. We invite you to join us for a BYM Quaker Camp experience, give the gift of your time, participate with children in activities and find yourself rejuvenated.
