July 25: The Nightingale by Kristen Hannah

It’s UUMAC Time!

Dates: July 10-16

Are you looking for a summer vacation option that will be fun, rejuvenating, multi-generational, and affordable? The Unitarian Universalist Mid-Atlantic Community (UUMAC) ’16 will be held July 10-16 near Allentown, PA. It is many things—a spiritual retreat, a family summer camp, an institute for learning and exploration, a weeklong party and reunion of kindred souls. We play games and instruments, sing, listen, discuss, learn, worship, visit, laugh, work, eat, (and sometimes sleep), dance and nosh at Night Owls, and paint faces and toenails at the Carnival. UUMAC is intentionally a multi-generational community, and programming is a balance of activity according to age grouping and across age barriers. Children, teens and adults each have programming geared to their interests. As well, ages mingle for off-campus trips, and evening activities.

This year’s UUMAC will focus on Radical Hospitality and Radical Justice. Rev. Libby Smith, an adjunct staffer at the Joseph Priestly District, and Rev. Dr. Tracy Sprowls of our Plainfield UU church will be our Minister of the Week and Theme speaker.
