Unicamp provides a safe space and community-based place to Unitarian Universalist youth for a diverse range of programs. From our community-oriented CIT programs to our Junior Youth week, participants have a blast here! Many of our lead staff came up through the ranks of youth programs and were Jouthers for a time. Most importantly, we acknowledge that UU youth are on a journey of discovery; Unicamp supports youth by giving them time to chill out, make new friends, and lend a hand around main camp. We support youth from all paths of identity to grow into their sense of self and be confident individuals at camp and at home.
Our 2019 LIT, CIT, and Youth Programs:
(Fees do not include HST)
Leaders In Training (L.I.T.): July 14th–August 2nd (Age 14 / entering Grade 9). The vision of LIT is to grow the leader and role model that already exists within, and to equip youth to grow in leadership at Unicamp and in their own communities. With the guidance of facilitators and mentors, LITs are given the opportunity to learn and discover more about the operations components of Unicamp. A one night camp-out is also a part of this exciting and memorable experience. During the camp-out skills learned by L.I.T. participants, such as living in a community and working together through common goals, are put to good use.

Counselors In Training (C.I.T.): July 7th–27th (Age 15 / entering Grade 10), with the opportunity to apply to volunteer (with a valid police check) during the last week of Children’s Camp, July 28th–August 2nd. Those chosen to volunteer will be notified during their time up at camp.
Would you like to grow your skill set to help you gain experience to work within Unicamp and other companies and organizations? CITs pick up from the skills learned in the LIT program to continue to grow and develop a sense of self and the skills required to excel as part of a team. This program features a 2-night camp-out at the Nottawasaga Bluffs, a day of shadowing a staff member, with plenty of time for fun, building friendships, and developing the leader within. Participants are encouraged to think about the role of mentorship in our lives and at camp.

Junior Youth (Jouth): Monday August 5th, 3pm to Friday August 9th 3pm (Ages 13–16). Through a series of fun and collaborative activities, Jouth will be challenged to work as a team and to utilize the strengths that each person brings with them to complete the activities. Our Jouth week is very much designed to build relationships, create together with the community, and enjoy the week with your peers. We will have both new and old camp activities to engage in. (Please note that Jouth ends on FRIDAY August 9th at 3pm)

Young Adult and Youth Retreat: September 13th–16th. Join UU young adults (18–35) for a weekend of community, conversation and carousing amidst the splendors of the changing leaves. Come for a hike on the trails, pick apples and make cider, gather a crew for a workshop, or grow friendships over crafts and games. Whatever the weekend is, it’s up to you as participants to bring your own gifts forward. With cars coming from everywhere between Montreal and Windsor, we can probably help with a ride too.
