Information for parents
Junior Gathering (formerly Summer School) is a week-long event for young Quakers aged 11-14. Each year we have a theme for the week, which we explore with visiting speakers and through workshops drama, worship, films and games.
Two adult coordinators (one male and one female) are responsible for the running of Junior Gathering. They are assisted by a team of adult volunteers.
In organising and running its events Friends Southern Summer Events (FSSE) follows guidelines from Britain Yearly Meeting concerning the safety and well-being of those taking part. All adult volunteers are required to have current, enhanced disclosures from the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly Criminal Records Bureau). Read more about how we aim to keep young people safe. Our child protection policy can be downloaded from our “Policies” page.
