Summer Happenings

Children’s Summer Program
UUCWC’s summer program for K-8th grade is called UU Kids Connect. It is virtual and nationwide, developed by seven religious educators in congregations in New York and New Jersey. (I am not one of the seven but I am helping with the program now). It is open to UU children across the country but is attended mostly by kids in the metro NY area. For years, I have wanted to collaborate on programming with other congregations but the driving distances between congregations are a barrier for family participation. I am so glad UUCWC kids are part of this program. It allows them to meet a wider variety of UU kids that they may connect with again at regional youth events. Children and youth may join our summer program at any time. Please email me at for more information.
