Camp Blue Boat

Registration is open. PNW's Unitarian Universalist summer camp immersion experience for youth from rising 6th-grade to 12th-grade graduates, with age-specific housing and programming. Campers, counselors and staff will spend time exploring being in relationship with one's self, others, and the wider world. Understanding relationships is necessary for a healthy spirit and for saving our lifeboat Earth. At camp, youth learn about community, spirituality, justice, equality, and also have a ton of fun! UU Camp is based upon 4 basic pillars. After attending, the youth will be able to:

  • Articulate beliefs grounded in UU theology and values;
  • Develop spiritual discipline;
  • Engage in social change rooted firmly in faith, love, and trust;
  • Build personal and religious resilience.

These attributes will take hold through workshops and immersion experiences aimed at exploring a faith-centered life; through time for personal reflection and developing spiritual practice; through fun activities like field games, crafts, hikes, swimming, and bonfires; through a Wilderness Council & Council of Elders, where youth share statements of faith and insights; by engaging in ritual via daily worships and walking the Labyrinth; and through integrated leadership development training, mentoring and modeling, to mention just a few! Come change your life forever... for the better!
