Wonderful news to share - discounts and reduced fees are coming to the 2019 FGC Gathering! Children and high schoolers will have zero program fees, and young adults will have reduced program fees. 

The Gathering, FGC's highly-anticipated week of workshops, worship, and community for all ages, recently received a generous donation to support family and youth attendance for this year's event. Thanks to this donation:

  • children and teen program fees are WAIVED
  • 50% of children and teen meal costs COVERED
  • MORE SCHOLARSHIPS are available to families and teens
  • young adult Friends (age 18-35) receive an additional $55 DISCOUNT on their program fee

"The Gathering is a wonderful opportunity for children, teens, and families," said Ruth Reber, FGC's Gathering Coordinator. "Junior Gathering and the High School Program supports and cares for our children and young people, offering them a spiritual base in their lives. They develop friendships that last a lifetime and strengthen their connection to Quaker community and practice."

Help us spread the news that this is THE year to bring families and young people to the FGC Gathering, and encourage the Friends in your life to register during Early Registration April 1st to 14th, 2019!
