Unitarian Universalist Island Network Summer Camp
August 18 to 20
“Let the beauty we love be what we do”. ~ Rumi ~
Friends new and old are waiting to meet you at camp on the shores of beautiful Shawnigan Lake. Camp provides time for spiritual development, strengthening old and forming new friendships and supporting diverse, intergenerational, intentional community.
Easter Seals Camp Shawnigan offers a lovely outdoor setting to have fun, relax, deepen friendships, explore spirituality and feel part of the larger Unitarian community. Take part in campfire, a Friday BBQ, variety show and family dance. As well, Saturday morning offers great programming for all ages, and the fabulous waterfront will be open in the afternoon. Hike up Mt. Baldy for a 360 degree view of Shawnigan Lake, explore the Kinsol Trestle, board games and crafts are other offerings for you to explore.
Unitarian Universalist Island Network Camp has something to offer everyone. Whether you are part of a family, single, senior or young adult, you are welcome here, and are sure to have a wonderful and enriching experience.
This year there are two streams of adult programming to choose from:
Mindfulness and the Creative Life with Margo McLoughlin including Yoga with Margaret Huff
Soul Nourishing Singing with Cathy Baker and Dick Jackson
A programming for youth and children (including wee) care on Saturday morning.
**Please note that you can come for the day only if that fits better for your schedule. It is only about a 45-minute drive from Victoria. What a wonderful way to spend a summer day!
‘Soul Matters’ Theme Groups
Look for new “Soul Matters” groups forming in September, 2017. Make meaningful connections talking about things that matter.
A “Soul Matters” theme group consists of eight to ten people who meet once a month to explore each month’s theme in depth. In advance of each monthly meeting group members receive thought-provoking resources to explore and intriguing practices to try. All groups continue from September to May.
A full commitment to all sessions is required so the experience can be as rich as possible for everyone. Those who engaged last year and attended all of the group gatherings found the program deeply enriching as they deeply engaged with the at-home material. They report it made a difference in their daily lives, while also helping them grow in their understanding of big-picture ethical, spiritual and personal issues.
