Unirondack weekend for Central New York UU congregations

Unirondack weekend for Central New York UU congregations:

Friday Sept 14  – Sunday Sept 16, 2018

Families, Friends, Individuals – People of all ages are encouraged to participate in a Fall family weekend at Unirondack. Since 2008, this intergenerational Unirondack weekend has been a source of early fall community building for Syracuse UU congregations. This year, it is scheduled for Friday Sept 14(starting at 4:00) – Sunday Sept 16th, 2018 (ending at 2-3 pm) and we are inviting folks from many UU congregations in Central New York. Unirondack is a UU Camp and Conference Center, a 2 – 2.5 hour drive from Syracuse in the western Adirondacks, near Lowville, NY.  To see the Unirondack facilities/environment, the website is: www.unirondack.org

People hike, bike, read, play games, go boating, talk, nap, arts, crafts, sport games or just sit by the lake soaking in the beauty. Group activities are encouraged and are led by the weekend participants. We ask that there be no electronic games since this is a weekend to spend in community with other UUs from the area. There are cabins and heated sleeping spaces with indoor bathroom facilities! People need to bring their own bedding, towels and pillows as well as their personal items.

The 2018 cost will be:   $70/PP for those over 10 years old; Children 4-10 years $62; Children 3 and under are free.   This is inclusive of 2 nights (F, S) lodging, 3 meals Saturday and Sunday breakfast & lunch.  Our costs are $31/night to Unirondack and the small balance is for group food costs for 5 meals. Friday dinner is on your own. (eaten in the car, dining out or cooked there) Snacks and transportation are not included in this rate.  Carpooling has been arranged by individuals in the past. Meals are prepared by participants and are shared in a dining hall.  Special dietary needs are carefully addressed and refrigeration is available for individual needs. Housing placements are selected by the coordinator based on group size, health needs, and order of reservation.
