Unicamp Board President Janice Canning

Dreaming of summer days when time stands still, we watch the leaves turn red, gold and yellow. Another season has passed at Unicamp and we remain with our memories of long summer nights, Cowpie Hill and the days of hiking and playing at the commons or the beach. This precious land and community that we call Unicamp has been put to bed for another season. But wait… not so fast…

This year we address our aging buildings and infrastructure. New steel roofs are being placed to weather the winter storms, buildings are being assessed for repair and renovations. We need all of us to get involved in fundraising. We are building a tree of hope—our Legacy Tree—to be placed on the outside of the dining room wall, sheltered by the new roof built over it this year (Thank you to all who worked so hard to have the dining deck roof project completed).

We would like to see all our member congregations participate in building our Legacy Tree. Leaves have been decorated by our children, youth, and adults young and old, and maybe even by YOU! We encourage congregations to get involved—buy a leaf in your congregations’ name, honour one of your members or donate in the name of a well-known Unitarian, the possibilities are endless. To donate, please click on Donate Now! in the menu above, or click on this link. For more information about our Legacy Tree, click here.

We are looking forward to celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2019! Do you have pictures or mementoes of Unicamp, both recent and from our shared history? How about a story or a song to perform or post on our website? Let’s celebrate, appreciate those who came before us to create this precious Unicamp and let us plan to leave the camp in better shape for the future of all our children unto many generations.
