The 2023 FGC Gathering will be held in-person in Monmouth, Oregon! The Gathering offers a wide variety of programs and events throughout the week, including workshops, programs for children and teens, evening speakers, Bible Half Hour and more!
Attenders may sign up for a week-long workshop when you register for the Gathering. Workshops meet Monday – Friday during Gathering from 9 – 11:45am.
Adults gather each evening to hear a speaker or performer. On Friday night, Friends of all ages gather for an evening together – usually for a concert.

Children and Teens
Children and teens flourish in age groups at the Gathering. Children are in their own programs every morning (during adult workshops) and every evening (during evening programs) — except for the Friday intergenerational evening program.
High schoolers (starting with rising tenth graders) are housed in their own dorm, sign up for a morning workshop, have some high school specific activities and also may participate in many afternoon options.
Adult Young Friends
The Adult Young Friends (AYF) program is a self-led intentional housing cluster and community of Friends age 18–35 who come together at the Gathering to inspire, create strong bonds of Friendship, and support the growth of Quaker leadership. Learn more about the Adult Young Friends program.
