We are going to try a new campground this year! I am going to reserve the group campsite for everybody and then collect payment. The cost depends on how many will be attending, but will be around $100 for three nights. The cost will be the same no matter how many days you’ll be staying. Once I have a head count, I can give the exact amount you will need to give me. You must give me payment by 10/29 or I will assume that you are not interested in joining us. Payment details to follow.

INTRODUCTION TO WUUC CAMPOUT

Every summer a large group of WUUC members go on a car camping outing together as a way to connect, get to know new and old members better, and have fun! I started going within weeks of joining the church and have returned every summer.

Members arrive on Thursday or Friday evening and leave on Sunday, although it’s perfectly acceptable to leave earlier if your schedule does not permit such a long trip. On Friday evenings we typically have an optional non-fiction book discussion, followed by a cocktail hour. On Saturday evening, we have an optional potluck dinner, talent show, and singing/socializing/smores by the fire (if there are no burn bans). You are responsible for your own meals and equipment. The rest of the time members typically spend time hanging out at their campsite, socializing, going on hikes, fishing, biking, etc. It’s all very laid back and welcoming, with the understanding that members can attend as much or as little as they wish.

It is right along the Skagit River, about two hours from church. We are going to camp out at two group sites. Each group campsite features a shelter with water, lights, picnic table, a brazier, fire ring, granite fireplace, and a large lawn area. The campsites are arranged around the central area like spokes on a bicycle wheel. You may car camp or use the electricity and water hookups for RVs. Dogs are permitted, running water and hot showers are available. There are approximately four miles of hiking trails, a playground with horseshoe pits and a basketball hoop, fresh water fishing, and interpretive and Junior Ranger programs. We will also have some organized games. A Discovery Pass is not needed for anyone staying overnight.

Thanks and remember to RSVP by 10/19!
