Attendees will check in on Friday night and get acclimated. Our Youth Group will lead a service Friday night at the newly designed waterfront grotto.

On Saturday there will be two workshop sessions, one morning, and one afternoon. Saturday night is our Multigenerational Skit Extravaganza and Ice Cream Social. Following that there will be an adult Coffee House if there is enough interest and a volunteer to MC!

Sunday morning there will be a service on Chapel Island. You always have the option of sitting out and enjoying nature, journaling, visiting, just BEing.

The price list is on the hard copy registration form. If you wish to make a secure ONLINE payment with a debit or credit card Click here. Weekend prices include lodging, all meals starting with breakfast Saturday, all activities, and KidsCrew run by the Camp Jewell staff so parents are able to attend adult workshops. There is also a Saturday-only rate (on form), which includes lunch and dinner only (lodging is not included). Friday night there will be snacks provided such as fruit and granola bars. You may want to pack sandwiches for the road trip. There are also pizza places on the way if you want to pick one up before you arrive.

The beauty of this weekend for parents is that they don’t have to shop, cook, or clean up after any meals, they are free to enjoy their families and the activities offered. (You will be asked to bus your own table and take one shift wiping tables and sweeping up.) Sunday morning after worship there will be activity time and we will wrap it all up with a cookout at noon before closing circle and heading home.

Registration forms will be available at the Camp Jewell information table in the lobby after services, as well as on our TUCW website. We look forward to sharing the magic of this wonderful weekend with you, especially those who have never attended before. We’re also excited to meet up with all the families that we only see sporadically throughout the year. Let’s have some fun and build community with other like-minded Unitarian Universalists!
