Tending Your Relationship - a Weekend Contemplative Retreat with Marsha and Mike Green
Montreat, NC, May 9 – 11, 2014 (Friday dinner – Sunday lunch)
High School Program participants live together creating community through a multitude of activities during the week. An intense and amazing, fun-packed Quaker experience.
Sixth through Eighth Graders spend their mornings in workshops and their evenings with both small support groups and large group recreational activities.
Kindergarten through Fifth Graders spend time with similarly aged friends, working on projects, singing, worshipping, playing and learning.
Preschoolers spend their mornings in a variety of spirited outdoor activities... all with abundant staffing.
Infants and Toddlers spend their mornings pretty much as they would if they were at home . . .

These small-group sessions often spark new leadings and insights. Choose from varied topics likely to include peace and justice issues, international conflict and peace-making, education, economics, spirituality, and other Quaker concerns.
To offer an interest group, submit a completed proposal by May 7.
