First Day School programming is shifting to "summer mode" beginning June 11. Rather than structured classes for each age group, we'll have a range of activities for children to choose from. It will be a little different each week, but expect crafts, games, outdoor activities when weather permits, music, baking, and special events.


August 13-19 - People Camp, a well-established program of Friends for a Nonviolent World, is a week-long experience of cooperation, community living, and exploration of ideas and issues. It will take place at Northern Pines near Park Rapids, Minnesota. Northern Pines is a comfortable and accessible facility on a lake that is suitable for boating and swimming.

Many ways to contribute:

There is an ongoing need for Woodbrooke Day presenters to prepare a lesson for the third First Day of the month, when the regular FDS schedule is suspended. Presenters may explore Quaker history or concerns, teach a skill, bake cookies, or share a personal interest. Children learn something new and our community is strengthened by nurturing connections between children and adults. Time commitment is typically for one lesson a year. You can also volunteer to assist a Woodbrooke presenter by contacting the Program Coordinator.
