Camp is an opportunity to build UU community for youth across the eastern part of our state. The program includes art, worship, games, field trips and service. This is our 7th year of offering the camp. The food is great (and includes vegan, allergy free and gluten free options). The price is very reasonable and there are scholarships. The memories are forever.
We are pleased to announce that the Summer Camp Program Director this year is Sara Gush. As Religious Education Assistant at The Community Church of Chapel Hill Unitarian Universalist in which she was raised, she has wide experience teaching as well as leading programs for UU youth, such as Sunday morning RE and Coming of Age. . Sara is a graduate of Arizona State University, where she majored in religious studies and philosophy. She first visited Shelter Neck during high school and has fond memories of each experience there.
Shelter Neck Youth Camp aims to connect youth from small, mid-size, and large Unitarian Universalist congregations across eastern and central North Carolina in a cohesive, energetic and thriving community.
Our Community ValuesOur community is based on UU visions and values including: creating a just & loving community, doing good in the world, accepting each other and learning together, continuous revelation, democratic decision making, practicing spirituality and ultimate optimism.
Summer ProgrammingWe offer one-week camp sessions for youth aged 12 to 17 at our rustic campus in Burgaw, North Carolina. Based on Unitarian Universalist values we are a caring community dedicated to enriching the lives of our youth and inspiring them to become lifelong Unitarian Universalists engaged in sustaining and transforming our world.
Shelter Neck Summer Youth Camps are made possible by the generous support of the Universalist Convention of North Carolina, Inc. (UCONCI). UCONCI was first organized in 1895 to promote the coordinated growth of Universalism and now Unitarian Universalism in North Carolina. UCONCI has owned and maintained Shelter Neck's forty acres since 1932.
Our Summer Camp programs are funded in part by a grant from the Fund for Unitarian Universalism. We thank them for their generosity.
