When you think about summer camp what comes to mind?

Is it seeing friends you have waited a year to see? Is it the smell of pine trees?  Is it the taste of S’mores while singing your favorite camp songs? 

Let’s come together so we can experience all of these sensations up the mountain at our beloved Camp de Benneville Pines.

Elementary campers are invited to spend the week exploring all the ways we can connect with our camp community using our senses. As a bonus we get to experience an exciting new way to celebrate 4th of July at camp! 

All campers are well cared for by trained counselors, adult program staff, a minister/Chaplain, and medical staff who are guided by Unitarian Universalist principles and work to build a loving and inclusive camp community. The new and rich experiences that children encounter at UU Elementary School Summer Camp can be genuinely life changing. All of this, plus lovingly prepared home cooked meals and the famous camp variety show.

Do not let your child miss this opportunity to connect with the sacredness of the mountain and the experience of summer camp. This camp is designed for campers who completed 2nd through 5th grades during the 23/24 school year.
