Days at Chalice Sparx


Early risers can go for a peaceful walk on one of the many trails of the Amigo Centre or join a group for sun salutations on the porch of the retreat center, then head to the Dining Hall for a shared breakfast. Then join the rest of our group of the morning multigenerational worship service in the large meeting room of the Lower Level (underneath the Dining Room).

After the morning worship service, children and youth head for their special programs where they will explore our natural environment and learn how they can be good stewards of the interdependent web of all existence. Meanwhile, the adults in the community will be treated to a program designed to enrich and enlighten as well as entertain.

Then it’s time for the second meal of the day. Children will return for a shared meal in community in the Dining Room. After lunch, there’s a choice of workshops on spiritual practices and creative expression. During the late afternoon there's free time when you can visit the nature center, take some time for a nap or a swim or join in one of our scheduled activities like a nature walk or volleyball game.


The evening at camp starts with reflection groups – a time to gather with a small group of people to check-in and reflect upon your experiences together. Then comes dinner and afterward some shared fun and bonding time for people of all ages – such as the annual UU's Got Talent show, a sing-a-long at the bonfire or enjoying fresh popped popcorn at Popcorn Hollow.

Nine o’clock is time for the young ones to settle down and be tucked in bed for the night. But the experience doesn’t end there. Preteens and teens can gather upstairs in the Living Room of West Side Lodge for some board or role-playing games while adults can join together extended gathering around the bonfire.
