Welcome, YRUUP!

Northern California Unitarian Universalist Camps and Conferences (NCUUCC) is proud to welcome Young Religious Unitarian Universalists- Pacific (YRUUP) into our nonprofit organization. We are excited to bring our communities together.

NCUUCC is a member of the Council of Unitarian Universalist Camps and Conferences, an affiliate of the Unitarian Universalist Association. We are an all-volunteer organization that oversees camps & conferences offered in Northern California & Nevada throughout the year.

YRUUP (formerly PCD YRUU) is an independent youth-led and adult-advised organization that provides several weekend-long conferences and a week-long camp throughout the year. These conferences are focused on providing a time and place for enriching spiritual experiences for people ages 14-20 in a respectful, open-minded, and safe environment.tumblr_static_88gwhg0i698ow8g0oc48wkgk8

We, NCUUCC, are honored to support YRUUP and their vision for youth and young adult empowerment. At all of our camps and conferences, our mission is to:

  • enhance the growth of each individual, our religious societies, and our presence in the larger community;
  • nurture the individual spiritually, intellectually, and creatively;
  • provide positive interaction among people of all ages;
  • provide experiences that reflect Unitarian Universalist values;
  • encourage personal and collective responsibility regarding social and environmental issues;
  • create environments that are genuinely caring and joyful;
  • celebrate life.

Both organizations work from well-established bylaws, policies and procedures, and safe-camp policies to ensure an enriching and safe experience for all.  We look forward to growing our collaborative partnership and look forward to creating quality programming for people of all ages together. For more information about YRUUP, please visit www.yruup.org.
