While some smaller camps are returning to in-person, our two largest gatherings in the region are remaining virtual this year. With the uncertainty of the vaccine distribution and no vaccinations yet for those under 16, this was felt to be the wisest decision. Learn what each of these groups are offering.
Summer Institute - Food for Your Soul
July 11-16, 2021. Join us for CERSI 2021: Food for the Soul! We have a delicious virtual menu of SI tidbits and treats - old traditions and new - ready for you and your family! You will find opportunities to connect with friends and meet new folks, to refresh and renew your spirituality, to think and learn, and to have some fun! We have built on what went well last year and are offering an exciting selection of tasty SI samples in anticipation of our in-person event in 2022 at Cal U.
Online content will be a blend of live events and recorded sessions to watch on your own schedule using the Whova app. The Whova app will allow for better interaction and have everything in one place for the week. The schedule is shaping up to include daily morning worship and small group interactions, along with creative and thoughtful workshops. Our RE and youth teams are cooking up exciting programs as well. Each evening will feature a different live community event including a sample of work from 2022's theme speaker poet Kazim Ali, music from Hal Walker, family trivia and the variety show. Registration for CERSI 2021 is open!
VUUMAC - Virtual UU Mid-Atlantic Community
July 11-31, 2021. We are thrilled to have you join us this year for our 2nd virtual conference and 40th (can you believe it?!) UUMAC! These three weeks of family, friends, and fun will be taking place this summer from July 11-31. Join us as we come together through workshops, dancing, worship, music, laughter, and so much more! We will be exploring this year's theme of Communities Within Community, led by Paula Cole Jones, Dr. Elías Ortega, our very dedicated staff team including Carla Miller and Francisco Ruiz, and last but certainly not least, our beloved members of UUMAC! Be sure your friends and family sign up ASAP on the UUMAC website. See you soon!
