Young Adult Camp “Resisting Injustice”
A Retreat for UU’s ages 18 — 35
Friday, August 31 — Monday, September 3, 2018
Experience an empowering retreat over Labor Day Weekend!
YA Camp is a great space providing creative & self-reflecting workshops, social justice streams, identity caucusing, and spiritual fulfillment. Social justice ‘streams’ will dive into various social justice movements and give campers tools to engage with those issues outside of camp. Plus…there is plenty of time to have fun with friends old and new. Swimming, canoeing, archery, pool time, board games, and more are just up the mountain!
The association of YA campers believes that it is important to not only remember UU values, but to live by them. “Faith is the sister of Justice.” At camp, you are invited to explore your role as a young adult in the justice movement(s), build relationships with one another around intersecting identities, share practices for healing and resistance, and learn how to support one another on the path toward liberation.
Affirming and promoting the inherent worth and dignity of every person means answering the call to resist injustice.
Registration for this camp is a two-step process. At the bottom of this page is a button which will take you to the portal for Step One. You will be asked a few very basic questions about how many people you are registering, who each of you are, what you like to eat and if you have any special dietary or medical needs that the camp should be aware of.
Upon completion of Step One you will instantly receive a Confirmation Email which will contain a link to Step Two, the Camper Profile portion of the registration process. Here you will be asked more specific questions about transportation, housing, financial needs and the types of activities you might like to volunteer for or participate in.
The base rate for this holiday weekend camp is $180. This includes food, lodging, Craig’s Cabin rental, hot tub and pool fees, nurse and social justice leader stipends and supplies. A sliding scale has been created to allow those with less financial means to pay less than their share, and hope that those with a better financial comfort level will pay a little more. You will find more information about this in Step Two, the Camper Profile portion of registration.
