Week 1, July 10-14: The first week of camp, campers will explore the heritage and history of Unitarian Universalism through varied and engaging activities, everything from puppet shows to field games. Campers will get to participate in traditional camp activities, arts and crafts and lots of outdoor play time, all with an emphasis on learning the basics of Unitarian Universalism- understanding the inherent worth and dignity of themselves, their peers, and the world around them.
Week 2, July 17-21: The second week of camp we will begin to tackle some of the current social issues in our community. Chalice camp offers children a safe, child-friendly environment to be exposed to topics such as racial inequality, gender, social class, and our identities while incorporating the fun and excitement of typical summer camp activities.
