Type of event: Conference

Middle School Conference (MS Con) is a place for our middle schoolers to experience a weekend of inclusive fun and community grounded in our Unitarian Universalist values.

There will be workshops, worship, a talent / no-talent show, swimming and boating (with certified lifeguards), and much more. Meals are served family-style in the dining hall, and youth sleep in cabin groups of six to eight youth.
The workshops are a large part of the weekend. They can range from archery to drama, collage, tie dye, games, field sports, yoga, day spa, or sock monkeys depending on the interests of the group and the talents of the leaders.

Eligibility: MS Con is for youth in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade who are active in their local Puget Sound Unitarian
Universalist congregation.

Fees: $150 if registered by 11:59pm on Sept. 4. $175 if registered by 11:59pm on Sept. 11. No registrations after Sept. 11.
Register Now!
