The CUC is the national organization for Unitarians, Unitarian Universalists, and Universalist Unitarians in Canada. The CUC is made up of member congregations to which it is accountable. It is a voice for our vibrant, liberal faith community, within the interfaith community in Canada, and within the international UU community. The CUC, through its small but dedicated staff, provides support for UUs and congregations across the country, fostering growth and outreach, particularly in the areas of lifespan religious education, spiritual growth, and social responsibility.
Unicamp is a Unitarian Universalist camp that is committed to providing a safe and welcoming seasonal camp and spiritual retreat to our diverse community. Our programs and activities are designed to grow awareness and practice of our UU values in which our camp is rooted. These values include the understanding of the importance of each person, the quest for kindness in all we do, that we are free to learn together and search for what is true. We affirm that all people need a voice, and work to build a fair and peaceful world and care for our sacred earth with awareness to the interconnectedness of all things.
Located in Dufferin County, just north of Shelburne, Ontario, Unicamp is within the UNESCO Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve. It boasts 50 beautiful, peaceful acres of meadows, coniferous and deciduous forests, marshes, streams, caves and two beaches on a 2.5-acre spring fed pond that is safe for swimming. This is a magical place to relax, explore and reconnect with self, community and nature.
Unicamp has indoor and outdoor showers, several outhouses, and washrooms in the cabins, the Dining Hall and the Spiritual Centre. You supply your own bedding, pillows and towels. Drinking water is available in all washrooms, at the outdoor sinks, and at several outdoor faucets.
We acknowledge and affirm that each of us has special qualities and talents to share. Campers are asked to help with chores such as tidying their dorm, cottage or campsite at the end of their stay, helping us to keep the Unicamp experience affordable for everyone and the environment community- and team-focused.
