Youth Camping

Youth Week at Camp UniStar conjures up feelings of deep friendships, the beauty of nature, freedom, belonging, growing up, and something more difficult to describe, something magical for the hundreds of UU teenagers who have attended since its inception in 1983. Its mission has been "to provide youth with a positive environment for growth and experience within the framework of Unitarian Universalism."

Youth Week offers youth entering grades 7 through 12 time with peers to work and play while building community and lifelong friendships. The mornings include a work project like painting and landscaping that contribute to camp. Activities for the rest of the day center on enjoying time on the island: hiking, kayaking, sailing, canoeing, swimming, playing ping pong, volleyball or games, or just relaxing on the dock.
