Winter Family Camp

Winter Family Camp at UBarU

Dec 27-30, 2019

Celebrate the winter holidays with your UU friends, enjoy the cool and darkness of December at camp, and relax from the holiday rush.  

Check in on Friday after 4 p.m but in time for dinner at 6 p.m. Camp will end on Monday morning about 10:30 a.m.  We will offer break-out sessions for adults and kids (over 5 years old) as well as multi-generation opportunities to sing, celebrate, and be in community together.  There will be an optional field trip to Kerrville or nearby area, camp fires and/or a star party (weather-dependent).  

Accommodations:  Participants will be sleeping in the new Dwight & Marie Brown Center in bunk beds, unless you have purchased use of a private room ($100 for private room which holds up to 4 people in the same family). Tent camping (bring your own tent) is also allowed. Each bunkhouse suite has central heat and air and one common bathroom. Additional bathrooms, sinks, and shower stalls are available one door down. Due to the communal sleeping arrangements, this event is not suitable for infants who are not sleeping through the night.

Meals will be provided Friday dinner through Monday breakfast except for Sunday lunch when we usually go to Kerrville for church and lunch. We ask if you have dietary allergies or preferences on the registration form and do our best to accommodate your needs.

Cost is $160 for adults & kids 13+, $90 for kids ages 5-12 years and $0 for little ones under 4 years. Reservation of a private room is an option as well. Cost is $100 per family of 4 to reserve the room. These are the early bird prices until Dec 1. Prices will increase to $185/$90 respectively. If you would like to camp, cost is $125 for 13+ years, $75 for kids 5-12 years until Dec 1 then the adult price increases. Meals and programming included.

Finally, please feel free to contact Robyn Stout or 830-460-6002, with any other questions or concerns you may have about the retreat. We are looking forward to spending a relaxing and spiritually rich weekend with you!
