I’d like to speak to what Summer 2013 looks like here at UUCB in terms of our young UUs Lifespan Faith Development programming. As some of you may know, UUCB is not holding their own summer camp this year. With all of the transition in the leadership of the Lifespan Faith Development program, we felt unable to fully offer an energetic and exciting camp.
So, rather than holding our own camp, we are extending our congregational reach to our UU community offerings. There are multiple other camps and retreats that are occurring this summer offered within the Front Range UU Community. I would draw particular attention to the youth summer camp offered at BVUUF in Lafayette. “Dharma Camp” will be held from June 3rd to June 7th, 9 AM to 3 PM daily at BVUUF. ‘This camp will offer an interfaith UU and Buddhist camp for children, celebrating and learning with martial arts, calligraphy, kyudo (Zen archery), as well as a Bouncy Castle, fire circle, animals in our Zoo Room, afternoon water play and twice daily chapels.’ I would encourage all UUCB families to look into this exciting camp as a way to expand connections with our local UU community.
At UUCB, we will be presenting a special curriculum for the summer. While we understand that families may be away frequently on trips over the summer, we are hoping to maintain enthusiasm and interest through an exciting program. More details to follow soon.
And finally, I wanted our members to know that I will be staying on as the Interim Director of Lifespan Faith Development through August. We are hoping to have our new, permanent Director of Lifespan Faith Development hired shortly. I appreciate your continued support and help as we move through these summer months.
