Annual Gathering, August 1-4, 2019.  

Youth Camp, July 31-Aug 2, 2019.  

Both will take place at Dickerson Friends Center, 9414 W. Hollywood Rd, Wasilla Alaska.
We are working to provide child care during portions of our Gathering to enable full participation by families with young children. If you anticipate attending and would take advantage of available child care, please let us know now to enable adequate planning! Please send email to [email protected] to let planners know the name and age of each child who will attend and use child care. 
Our theme for Annual Session will be supporting and empowering youth and young adult Friends.  The program is being planned in conjunction with our Alaskan teens to address this charge of theirs:  "Show us the love, joy, fun, and empowerment of being Quaker."  We hope to create experiences where that thing we call the Light is so lovely that people of all ages are drawn to it.
We are very excited that Diane Randall, Executive Secretary of the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL), will be with us!  Diane has a reputation for inspiring and engaging teens and young adults, and our community has a lot to learn together.  
Youth camp starts the day before Annual Session, and overlaps with Annual Session a bit.  We will also provide (younger) child care during Annual Session, so families with little ones, please come as well.
Let's be with one another, listen deeply to each other and to the still small voice of God, and work and play hard!  We will send out more information as summer progresses.  We want you all.  Please join us!
