What can Friends expect to experience as part of the YF/YAF Gathering?
We're excited to bring a critical mass of Young Friends and Young Adult Friends together to energize and strengthen our community and rejoice in our time together in worship, play, and good conversation. We hope to rejuvenate the Canadian Young Friends community and discern our collective path forward, asking what we want to be doing and what makes sense for us. Planning is well under way for exciting and enriching programming for both YFs and YAFs!
What are accommodations at Camp NeeKauNis like?
NeeKauNis offers a number of different accommodation options based on individual needs. Attendees will sleep in cabins, some of which have indoor plumbing and some of which are served by the wash-house. Everyone must bring their own bedding! Meals will served in a communal meal hall.

How does the funding work? Who is eligible?
Funds will be allocated by members of the YF/YAF Gathering Planning Committee , who will take into account financial need and home region. Anyone 35 and under with a connection to the Religious Society of Friends is eligible! Young Friends are typically defined as being at least 12 or 13, but there may be funding available for younger Friends as well, particularly if they are the children of Young Adult Friends also attending the NeeKauNis Gathering.
We ask that Friends also seek financial support from their Monthly Meetings. We realize that not all YFs have a close connection to a Monthly Meeting, so if you are in this situation or need assistance in approaching a Monthly Meeting for support, please e-mail us. Support could also come in the form of travel planning, a loan of items such as sleeping bags, knowledge about Quaker gatherings, etc.
Registration for FGC Gathering opens on April 3rd, 2017. For information, visit: http://www.fgcquaker.org/connect/gathering
