 Registration is open for the "A" sessions at this time.  "B" sessions will open later based on interest and staffing.  If only a "B" session works for you, you can register for the camp on a waitlist.  When Sessions A are full, a waitlist will also be started.  If Session B becomes an option, you may be offered a space in Session B from the Session A waitlist.  


We are hoping to offer a second week of camp (based on staffing and demand) in hopes of accommodating the campers who want to come to camp while reducing the capacity for each week of camp.  Our planned reduced capacity is to help reduce the risk of transmission of corona virus so we plan to have approximately 50% capacity each week of camp.  We will first open registration to "A" weeks of camp and then open the "B" dates based on registrations received and staffing.  If you would like to be an adult counselor, please see the documents at the bottom of this page for more information.  Adult counselors receive reduced camp fee for a chosen camper.  

Additional COVID precautions planned include pre-camp testing, mask wearing, physical distancing particularly during meal times with some meal serving modifications, reduced number of campers, shifting activities outdoors, temperature checks, no field trips and additional cleaning of high-touch surfaces.  


Within the confines of the precautions, we plan to offer many of the activities from camp in "normal times" like swimming, archery, community service, walking the labyrinth, camp meetings, games, crafts, worship and U-cubed (our RE-like time lead by the UU camp chaplain).   We will spend lots of time having FUN 
while we deepen our UU faith​!    

All meals and lodging are included from Sunday dinner through Saturday breakfast.  Campers are to arrive beginning 4 p.m. on the Sunday of the first day of camp and will be ready to leave by 10:30 the Saturday of the last day of camp.  Please note that the Intermediate A week is planned to begin on Monday, July 5 and end on Saturday July 10th.  Campers can arrive on Monday after 4 p.m and camp will end on Saturday by 10:30 a.m.  (Price will be reduced accordingly). 

Scholarship applications will be accepted thru Active (see button below) through March 31, 2021.  Scholarship application fee of $115 will applied toward camp cost for your camper.  Typical family contribution is $215.00 for each camper.  Scholarships of varying amounts are given from UBarU Camp & Retreat Center based on congregational, cluster or other contribution and funds available.  Your home church (if applicable) is asked to match contributions from UBarU.  Ask your DRE, your minister, cluster and/or board president for support in sending youth to summer camp at UBarU.  Please contact director@ubaru.org with information about scholarship commitments from your local UU community as soon as they are made.  Once the funding has been established and communicated, your scholarship application can be converted by the UBarU director into a camp registration.  Please contact your home church about their support for your camper's experience.  

Email Robyn at director@ubaru.org with questions about camp, scholarship, or being an adult counselor, etc.  Adults and youth who are selected will be offered a Coupon code to use for a camp registration.  If you would like to be part of summer camp staff, please read the information provided and submit the appropriate application.  Thank you!
