To Our Members and Friends,

Providing Spiritual Opportunities to New Seekers

For five years young adults have flocked to the Nightmare music festival in Maryland in celebration of the themes, aesthetics, and energy of Halloween. A new ordinance passed by county supervisors has left this event, scheduled for the last weekend in October, without a home.

After much consideration, the Board of Directors has decided to take in these young people, and to take on the challenge of hosting Nightmare in New Camp, alongside Samhain in Main Camp. We will be reaching out to a population of Seekers who have had a lot of personal losses in their young lives; this is important work for our Church and fitting of our mission.

We make ceremony for ourselves and we welcome those who have come to the Land seeking, as has been the way of things for many years. We will share Samhain on our Land, standing in service to the young people who have lost their own place for celebration... a pain Four Quarters knows all too well from its own history. We will honor our Ancestors in our traditional ways, and we make healing ceremony for both long-time attendees and those with us for the first time.

Tentative plans include our traditional Samhain activities within The Stone Circle. Sound will be limited to New Camp, with shuttle service on RT 26 connecting our established Samhain traditions with our guests in New Camp.

We do understand there are many questions about the details; more information will follow as plans are finalized.

Service. Ceremony. Celebration.
These we know...
And these we share
