Help support our Youth and Family Scholarship Fund

Your generosity can make a significant difference in the lives of young people and adults alike, as well as in the broader UU community

Camp de Benneville Pines is a place of transformation, where young minds are nurtured, interpersonal skills are honed, and a profound connection to nature is forged. It’s a haven where individuals of all ages can explore and embrace UU values, foster lasting friendships, and grow as individuals. We firmly believe that these experiences are invaluable in shaping the future of our community and our world.

During the 2023 camping season, thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, our scholarship fund was able to assist 25 campers in attending our UU Camp. These campers, from diverse backgrounds and circumstances, had the opportunity to immerse themselves in a nurturing and inclusive environment, learning about UU principles, and connecting with the beauty of the natural world.

However, as we look towards the future, we must acknowledge that our scholarship fund is running low. The demand for financial assistance is ever-present, and we want to ensure that every young person, and indeed every adult, who wishes to attend our camp has the opportunity to do so, regardless of their financial situation.

By contributing to our Youth and Family Scholarship Fund, you are:

  1. Empowering Young Minds: Your support allows us to inspire the next generation of UU leaders, nurturing their curiosity and passion for social justice, equity, and inclusivity.
  2. Building Strong Interpersonal Skills: Campers develop vital life skills such as teamwork, communication, and empathy, which will serve them well in all aspects of life.
  3. Connecting with Nature: Our camp provides a unique opportunity to foster an appreciation for the natural world, instilling a sense of stewardship and environmental consciousness.
  4. Creating a Stronger UU Community: Together, we can strengthen our UU community by ensuring that everyone, regardless of their financial situation, can participate in this transformative experience.

Please consider making a donation to our Youth and Family Scholarship Fund today. Your gift will directly impact the lives of young people, adults and families, fostering personal growth, deepening their connection to UU values, and creating lasting memories.

Every dollar you contribute will make a tremendous difference and help replenish our scholarship fund for future campers.

Thank you for your support and commitment to our Unitarian Universalist community. Together, we can continue to make a positive impact on the lives of those who attend our camp and strengthen our UU values for generations to come.
