Camp CommUUnity 2020!

Sunday, July 12 – Saturday, July 18, 2020
Dean: Marianne Swift-Gifford

Unitarian Universalists are people of all ages, many backgrounds and beliefs. We are brave, curious and compassionate thinkers and doers. We create spirituality and community beyond boundaries, working for more justice and more love in our own lives and in the wider community while living our values.

What brings us together? What keeps us together? Community! Communities provide relationships and connections with others, support, a sense of belonging, a place for gathering together, hope, motivation to keep pushing forward, and opportunities to give back to others in need.

Camp CommUUnity will focus on why we come to our beloved Camp de Benneville Pines…to be in a place we can commune with nature, find solitude, and be welcomed into a community where we can make new friends and reconnect with old ones. We foster a community of hope and resilience and cultivating those characteristics in ourselves! We strive to help campers make connections at our Junior High Summer Camp! It is our goal to create a safe, fun, creative, and inclusive space for all campers to unwind from their daily lives and to remember the connections that surround them.

Campers have the opportunity to participate in swimming, canoeing, hiking, archery, team building activities, playing games, music, arts and crafts, a variety show, dancing, a service project and making friends for a lifetime! Campers are invited to share their talents, hobbies, favorite board games and activities at camp. There will be time in the lodge and in the cabins to simply unwind and relax while building community! Bring your games, stories, songs, and instruments!! We are creating space in our week to simply be together.
