Labor Day Weekend Camping trip

Dates: September 3-5
Location: Rocky Gap State Park, in western MD

Registation: Register by August 28th with Nicole Levesque at nlevesque@verizon.net, and include: (1) number of adults and kids (adult starts at 9th grade and above), (2) choose a package as described below, and (3) include any dietary constraints (e.g, vegetarian) or food allergies.

This is a great opportunity to get to know each other while swimming, hiking, boating, playing capture the flag, or just relaxing.   The trip is sponsored by UUCSS Families LUUV group, but all church members and friends -- singles, couples, triples, tribes, dynasties, hordes -- are all welcome (including new members and friends of the church)!

What you'll need: You'll need a tent, sleeping bags, and so forth, but all food is organized by meal coordinators.  Each person helps out with setup or cleanup on a meal or two, and helps with some other tasks (such as fetching water, building the fire, or keeping the kids from eating all the chocolate bars).

There are two packages available for the trip.  For package (1), the cost for the trip is $32 per adult and $23 per kid if you come for Saturday lunch through Monday breakfast (6 meals).  For package (2), which includes Saturday lunch through Sunday lunch (4 meals), the cost is $24 per adult and $17 per kid. Each package includes the food!  What a bargain!

The campsite alone (no meals) is also available Friday night for those who want an early start to the weekend.  But rush hour traffic out of DC adds extra travel time to the trip.

UUCSS 101

Dates: August 21, 2016
Time: 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
Location: Classroom 5 (on the lower level under the Sanctuary).  No preregistration required.
