UU Community Weekend
Hosted by Main Line Unitarian Church September 2 – 4, 2017
Camp Canadensis in the Poconos A weekend getaway filled with fun, relaxation, and community All Philadelphia-area UU church members are welcome – children, youth, adults, and the young at heart. Please join us! A Wonderful Experience Awaits You The Camp Canadensis setting in the beautiful Pocono Mountains along Lake Lenape, a private 75-acre lake, offers many ways to enjoy this weekend with our UU community. Take a hike on one of the 13 miles of nature trails, grab a friend and kayak or canoe out onto the lake, take a dip in the heated outdoor pool or simply sit on the deck overlooking the lake and read a book. There is plenty more to do too: tennis, gaga, climbing wall, Frisbee, beach volleyball, soccer, basketball, archery, and fishing. For quieter moments, participate in a group meditation or join our traditional Water Ceremony where we refresh our spirituality through the loving community and beautiful surroundings. Join an early morning yoga class or create your own discussion group or activity.
We also have a few traditional evening events for all who want to enjoy them. On the first night, we hold a big group campfire and make s’mores. On the second night, there is our enormously popular Talent Show where performers of all ages can participate, no talent required! The show is typically followed by board and card games of many kinds. Night-owl adults can later meet at campfires sharing stories, singing songs and sipping their libation of choice.

MURRAY GROVE ASSOCIATION MISSION/VISION
Murray Grove’s mission is to mark the origins of Universalism, a liberal religious tradition based on love and profound acceptance that transformed the landscape of religion in America. It has a long, proud history and is the site of the Universalist “miracle” almost 250 years ago through a fortuitous meeting between John Murray, a Universalist minister landing on the New Jersey shores from England and Thomas Potter, who built a local meetinghouse without a minister. The purpose of Murray Grove is to preserve and protect this heritage and to promote its message of Love and Inclusion. The Murray Grove Association was formed as a living memorial to the lives and the Universalist faith of John Murray and Thomas Potter.
