In collaboration with other UU congregations in the Pacific Northwest, we are offering summer camp again this year! Save the dates:
June 28 – July 2: Wizard Camp (ages 5-13)
Spend a week in the world of wonder, magic, play, and UU values.
Looking for a safe way to play this summer? UUWA is a virtual wizarding program — a week of fun and fantasy for kids, rooted in values of justice, action, unity, worth, courage, and possibility.
Young wizards from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean, the US, and Canada, will convene for Univelarian University of Wizarding Arts (or UUWA for short)!
Our campus will meet virtually from June 28 through July 2, with an optional in-person outdoor gathering on Wednesday, June 30. Each day will be filled with magic, play, adventure, imagination, and justice, based on UU values. Every wizard, ages 5-13, will receive a package of supplies for their house meetings and classes over the week.
We strive to create a program that is engaging and inspiring for the participants and easy and hands-off for the adults!
The week will kick off with a sorting ceremony on Monday morning and close with a graduation celebration on Friday evening. Days will run from 9-11 and 1-3 pm. There will be additional optional time for socializing during the lunch break. On Wednesday evening, we will gather together with the campuses across North America.
