Sunday Mornings:

Camp Athena: Pillars of faith

This year’s program is loosely based on the Percy Jackson, Camp Half-blood series, exploring Greek and Roman Gods & Goddesses. Our seven pillars are:
HONOR ALL PEOPLE
CARE FOR EVERYONE
ACCEPT DIFFERENCES
SEEK WISDOM
LISTEN TO OTHERS
MAKE CONNECTIONS
GUARD THE EARTH

Sunday mornings

Services start at 10:30. Families attend the start of worship to hear the Tale of the Day.

Children then move to The Agora (Unity Hall), where we light our chalice, share our triumphs & our troubles, and muse over the Tale of the Day.

Children then have the chance to choose one of three spaces:

  • Cabin Athena for Arts Crafts
  • Ares Arena for Active Games
  • Hestia’s Hearth & Home for those who prefer unstructured time.

During Coffee Hour children are welcome to stay in the Camp Athena space for cookies and juice to connect with each other while parents connect downstairs with other adults.
