Would you enjoy a week on a beautiful island retreat where you can unplug, unwind, and enjoy nature? A place where you can learn something new and engage -- when you want to -- with a village of old and new friends who are largely rooted in Unitarian Universalist values?
Camp UniStar is a special week-long rustic retreat for individuals, couples and families with shared values. Reachable only by water, the camp is surrounded by the Chippewa National Forest on Star Island in Cass Lake, one of the largest lakes in northern Minnesota, near Bemidji.
The camp's waterfront offers a wide range of activities. The island's forest trails attract hikers. Sunrises and sunsets encourage meditation. Each year UniStar campers return for the serenity and community, with no roads or commercial enterprise, and enjoy a week filled with thought-provoking programs, wonderful meals, and memorable experiences.
During the season, camp offers 12 weeks with various programs – some for youth only, some for adults only, most for a combination of individuals to family groups. The season opens with a work week fixing up the camp, and two youth weeks for people entering 7th through 12th grades. In addition to staff, camp capacity each week is up to 70 campers, who are housed in sleeping rooms in the cabins and the upstairs of the main lodge, or in a tenting area beside the lake.
We hope this website will give you an idea of this uniquely Minnesotan, uniquely Unitarian Universalist place that is special to so many hearts.
