Mystic Lake retreat chalice

People’s Church middle schoolers will join other MidAmerica Unitarian Universalist middle schoolers at the Fall Mystic Lake District UU Retreat October 17-19.

If you would like your 6th through 8th grade children to want to be involved in church as a teenager, this is the best way to help them to connect to the larger UU movement and youth from other churches. This retreat mixes the best elements of a youth conference with YMCA camp programming and facilities.  It is the perfect introduction to the ever popular youth conferences which also begin in middle school.

Highlights of time at Mystic Lake include UU worship, a low ropes course, archery, fishing, games, campfire, connection with youth from other UU churches around the region and lots of fun!

We will also need adults to drive and chaperone our group. Please contact Diane Melvin at if you are willing to drive and chaperone.  Because this weekend is held at a YMCA Camp which includes their food, bunk beds and programming, it is much more expensive than a regular con.  If cost is a prohibitive issue for you and/or your youth to attend, please let Diane know.
