The 2021 TriQuarter Gathering at YMCA Camp of the Pines has been postponed for another year
Our Virtual gathering will take place Saturday September 25th. Please register to receive detailed updates with program schedules and zoom links for the events.
You might be asking, "What is the TriQuarter Gathering?"
TriQuarter is an annual gathering of Friends (and friends!) from Haddonfield, Salem and Burlington Quarterly Meetings at YMCA's delightful "Camp in the Pines". It is an invaluable opportunity to convene with nature, participate in workshops led by members of our community, and develop new and lasting friendships.
You might be asking, "Why should I come?"
During the weekend, you might explore the night sky with a dedicated astronomer, join a guitar sing-a-long with some s'mores by the light of a roaring campfire, clamber onto a bumpy hayride through the woods, or paddle a canoe to the serene center of the cedar lake. You might stop by the Art Center to marvel at the beautiful works on display there, or use the space to create something of your own to take home. The kids might test their daring at the Challenge Course while their parents attend one of the workshops offered all throughout the weekend. On Sunday morning, the outdoor Meeting for Worship is always accompanied by a little symphony of birdsong that fills the spirit with joy. This annual event is truly beloved by all who participate. We hope to share in the Light with you at TriQuarter this year!
