RE Week at The Mountain Children’s Program:

A-Little-Bit-of-Everything Summer Camp

When you think of summer camp, what comes to mind? Hikes, arts and crafts, singing camp songs, swimming in the lake? Yes to all of that! Campers age 4-17 at R.E.Week at the Mountain, July 8-13,  will sample well-loved traditions of summer camp, grounded in UU customs and values, and with a heavy dose of choice and freeform fun.

Ages 4-7: Youngsters Program. This age group will have their own Mountain volunteer lead children’s program, which runs from after Breakfast up to end of LREDA afternoon programming. The children will re-join their parents at Lunch to check-in and share the excitement of all they’ve discovered during the morning. This program is led by Teresa Honey Youngblood, a credentialed religious educator, a hospital chaplain, and author of the book Spirited Homeschooling: Home-, Church-, and Community-based Learning in the Liberal Religious Family. She and her family live in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Ages 8-11: MountainCamp Immersion. This age group will join our Elementary MountainCamp campers from after Breakfast to end of LREDA afternoon programming each day, having Lunch with their MtnCamp peers. This group will be provided their own daytime counselor and return to their parents care for the evening.


ENROLL as a full participant in MOUNTAINCAMP. For the true MountainCamp experience we encourage enrollment in our one or two week sessions. Campers will be fully immersed in the sleep-away camp experience, being housed in MtnCamp cabins and spending the entire week in programmed activity. This year’s LREDA event overlaps with week one of Elementary MountainCamp. For the parents of enrolled MountainCampers camper parent stayovers are available for 7/13-14 after LREDA ends. ***THIS PROGRAM FILLS QUICKLY!
