Junior Gathering and Senior Conference

Saturday, 19 August, 2017 - 16:00 to Saturday, 26 August, 2017 - 16:00

What are Junior Gathering & Senior Conference?
Junior Gathering & Senior Conference are week long Quaker gatherings for young people (11-14, 15-18)

What happens during the week?
It is an exciting and busy week: aside from meeting some like-minded young people in a vibrant, Quaker environment, you will have the opportunity to take part in a wide selection of activities.

Like what?
Days begin with meeting for worship and end with an epilogue. In between, there are plenty of activities on offer including: music making, arts & crafts, sport, swimming, making really big things, discussion groups, team challenges, biscuit making, barn dancing and more! There is also a day trip to Cambridge, lively evening entertainments, a fancy-dress disco and a bonfire.

We explore the theme with visiting workshop facilitators and through simulations, workshops and small group discussions. Everyone is also part of a small 'base group' who meet each day to get to know each other, play games and talk about the theme (they are like a mini family for the week).

Will there be anyone like me there?

Are you sure I'll make friends?
