Friday February 10th through Sunday the 12th Young Adult Friends (nursing babies too!) are invited to Snowshoe, Cross Country Ski, Chop Wood, Cook, do a Service Project, and PLAY.
Saratoga Friends Meeting is excited to encourage a gathering of Young Adult Friends to share a nature experience at Camp Little Notch (744 Sly Pond Road Fort Ann NY 12827).
Why at Camp Little Notch you ask? Camp Little Notch exists to “provide opportunities for all people to practice living in harmony with nature, each other, and themselves” as per their mission statement. Saratoga’s beloved attender Jo Lum is on their board.
On a Monthly meeting level there is a concern for and energy to welcome spirit to Quaker experience. Many people who find them selves in the CYF age range are hungry to be together to be active in the world and in their local communities; this is a time to do that. Let’s be present with one another and intentionally spend time with nature, with preparing our meals, searching for how the divine moves each of us, and playing in the snow or mud depending.
Friends are asked to prepare for a camping like experience with wood heated buildings and no running water. Dress warmly and pack accordingly (warm sleeping bags and pads) or ask to borrow anything you need, there’s plenty to share. We’ll need to hike in (if there’s lots of snow it’ll be on snowshoes, pulling gear that isn’t in backpacks on sleds), so if you have snowshoes, toboggans, etc, please bring them. And if you don’t have them, let us know so we can bring enough extras.
If led, please bring a nourishing item for a stone soup. Please make us aware of any food allergies (food will be vegetarian). If you can, plan to also make a donation to the cost of the food.
Rides or Carpooling from Saratoga??? You can take the bus or train to Saratoga and we’ll pick you up!
Please let Rebekah know that you are coming by e-mailing her at
firstname.lastname@example.org so that she can pack enough food!
With great joy,
Saratoga Friends Monthly Meeting
