May 15 – 17 – BYM Spiritual Formation Retreat
Claggett Center (Adamstown, MD)

The Spiritual Formation Working Group welcomes you to our Spring retreat, which will be held at the beautiful Claggett Center in Adamstown Maryland. We will gather on the theme of prayer as both a practice and a disposition of heart and spirit. We will practice five forms of prayer, as we honor the yearnings of opening to Spirit, receiving blessings and expressing our gratitude. Come refresh and renew your spiritual being, as you share your story, community meals, conversation and fellowship with seekers throughout the BYM area. The Claggett Center offers us comfortable accommodations, lovely mountain views, and walking trails through fields and farmland. You can register here www.bym-rsf.org/events/spiritform.

Family Camp Weekends at Baltimore Yearly Meeting Camp Properties offer us a chance enjoy our beautiful camp properties during this delightful time of year. Individuals and families are invited to come to camp for a day or for the weekend. A program coordinator will plan camp-familiar activities for Saturday and Sunday mornings, as well as Saturday afternoon and evening. Perhaps you will explore a creek, create a crafts project, play a favorite camp game or take a hike in our precious woods. 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 service! We will savor 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. Participants are asked to contribute according to their ability – $25-50 per person. For additional information or to register please contact David Hunter, Camp Property Manager.
