Feb 2-4, 2018

“Alone” comes in many flavors like those every-flavor jelly beans. ( “Hmm, is this flavor mango or ear wax?” ) Some are yummy and some are yucky.

Alone can be powerful; alone can be painful.

We will share experiences on how to cope with this universal experience and to practice ways to be powerful individuals, even when in a crowd.

But for most of THIS weekend we will not be alone. It is an almost full moon, so plan on group night walks ( Will we have deep snow for that? A frozen pond?) and a fire. We may be all adult-ish, but there should still be pillow piles, people piles and piles of snacks to keep us fueled for games and small group discussions.

In spite of the title, we also encourage you to invite other young adults who have not been to the Powell House youth program. This is a great conference for first time attenders or folks who have not been in long while.

Fee $125

While Mike Clark and Chris DeRoller plan to facilitate this conference, they probably won't do it alone. To start, much of the content was developed by a young adult who was left alone at Powell House due to a snow storm.


This conference is through the youth program, so adults who attend are expected to follow the schedule, expectations and guidelines of a youth conference.

Powell House is the conference and retreat center of the 

New York Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
