All of the options below are open to UU youth in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Thunder Bay.

Annual

HalloUUeen Con – ages 12 to 19

October 24, 2020

11:00 am – 7:00 pm on Zoom

Canadian youth from across the country are welcome to join this one-day online event in the tradition of the Western Regional Fall Gathering Youth Con. The program is open to all Canadian youth (ages 12-19) and advisors (ages 25 and up).

This will be a time for us to dress up, find some connection and distraction, and be silly together. And at the same time, we will honour the sacredness of this time of year, when the veil between the worlds is thinnest, and connections with our ancestors and those who have passed on are more present. There will be games, small groups to bond with, and of course, inspiring youth-led worship. Together we will find the perfect balance of acknowledging the times we are living through with plain old fUUn – the kind that UU youth do best!

Fee: $10-$20-$30-$40 sliding scale, with “other” payment option.

Only those who have registered and paid by the October 18 deadline will receive the Zoom link for the event.

For more information and to register, visit the CUC HalloUUeen Con page.

CanUUdle – ages 14-19

Presumably May 21-24, 2021. In Halifax, NS or online

 

Youth must be registered in our RE program to attend.
