What will the Sr. High Summer Camp Registration process be?

All campers interested in attending Sr. High Summer Camp will complete the much shorter waitlist registration interest form online. There is no deposit required to sign up for the waitlist. no deposit required at this stage of the process). All campers will be placed on the waitlist at the start of this process.

The waitlist registration interest form will open on April 2, 2022 at 10:00 PM PT and close on April 15, 2022  To attend this year’s Sr. High Summer Camp, you must complete the waitlist registration process by April 15, 2022 at 11:59 PM PT.

After April 15, 2022, Sr. High Summer Camp leadership (youth deans, adult dean, and Camping Ministries Director) will determine which waitlisted campers will be invited to summer camp based on the following factors:

    • Grade prioritization (beginning with campers who have completed 12th)
    • Beds available
    • Staffing availability to maintain exceptional adult-to-camper ratio
    • Sr. High Summer Camp leadership will inform you/your if you have been accepted to attend camp this summer season by April 30, 2022.

Come to Camp BeaUUty this summer under the sun and pines to discover what truly brings Unitarian Universalist youth together. The social construct of “traditional beauty” standards is full of it. Beauty myths are fueled by the media and what they choose to portray on screen and in photos. We invite you to a camp where we will explore how we can do our part to erase the unrealistic standards placed on people and rid ourselves of unintentional personal prejudices based on looks. Welcome to Camp BeaUUty: Love Yourself and Others.

Camp BeaUUty will include powerful worship, themed workshops, leadership trainings, a camp service project, and time to soak in the beauty of nature, as well. As we create a welcoming space for all, be a part of Senior High’s traditional camp favorite activities: ice cream social, auction, variety show, arts and crafts, ping pong, archery, star gazing, Night Crossing, hiking to Jenks Lake, the amazing end of the week dance, making friends for a lifetime, and more!

This camp is designed for campers completing 9th – 12th grades.
