UU Chalice Camp this Summer: July 25-29 at UUSS–Details Here!
 It’s a blessing I was born. It matters what I do with my life.  What I know about god                        is a piece of the truth.   It matters what we do together.  We don’t have to do it alone.
            These are some of Chalice Camp’s UU themes.  We will bring back this week of learning and community building activities for members’ children, grades 1-6.   In 2006 we had 18 kids and 4 Counselors (youth assistants) at UUSS.  Our hardworking leaders recall that it was a great bonding experience for the congregation’s kids.  Activities include circle groups, worship, lunch, arts, theater, discussion, and enough free-choice activities for either the pensive or the exuberant.  Your kid will come home worn out and satisfied.  Bring your own lunch; we’ll provide  snacks.

CAMP DIRECTOR:  Family Minister.

REGISTRAR:  RE Assistant.

VOLUNTEER COORDINATORS:  Jeannine and JoLane from the Religious Education Committee.

TRAINER/CONSULTANTS:  Bonnie and Liz (co-director and RE staffer from UUSS Chalice Camp 2006).

CAMP COUNSELORS:  Trained UU teenagers and UU young adults (college age).  Stipend for  five days of camp service plus a mandatory day of advance training:  $450.  Counselors-in-Training from grades 7-8 will be accepted; no stipend.
