Amanda Payne is your lead, but contact Amy Mosley with interest (email@example.com)
COVID safety. Our Covid safety protocols, crafted by the Covid Cootie Committee (CCC), are considered to be a covenant/community agreement that we collectively enter. We are relying on each other to help keep us all safe, and we keep the seven UU principles in mind as we navigate both the uncertainty of these times and our strong drive to gather. Please note that there is no vaccination requirement for Labor Day Camp.

By registering for and attending Labor Day Camp, all campers agree to the following:
- To undergo a Covid rapid antigen test at the gate. A negative test result is required in order to enter camp
- For campers under 2 years old, proof of a negative Covid test is required at the gate. This can either be a PCR test performed within ~72 hrs of arrival at camp, or a rapid antigen test performed at the gate
- No unregistered visitors. Please do not encourage visitors; we do not have the personnel over this short weekend to accommodate their arrival, and since ‘no visitors’ is part of the community agreement, other campers have not agreed to their arrival either
- All campers will test themselves at home (either by rapid test or PCR) 5 days after the end of camp. Record of this test will be submitted to the CCC via Google Form.
Childcare, Workshops and Activities. There is no childcare and no official workshops offered at Labor Day Camp. Campers are encouraged to bring a workshop to share, if able. Evening activities will include a game night, a byo mock/cocktail tasting, and hopefully live entertainment from a local group.
A message from the Dean
I am honored to help make this camp happen and bring our NCUUCC family together again in the beloved Mendocino Woodlands, which are on Northern Pomo land. The many successes of Family Camp, which was a grand effort by our valiant deans and many community members, inspired me to take on Labor Day Camp leadership. Our community really stepped up and I am so proud of us!
As we re-form our community and gatherings during the Covid pandemic, we are also stepping into a new understanding of stewardship of the woodlands. Spearheaded by the Leschyns, NCUUCC has partnered with the local Pomo through the Save Jackson Coalition to end logging in the area, and move toward full stewardship by the Pomo, known as Pomo Land Back. These efforts are a full expression of our UU principles, and are long overdue. Thank you Wade and Debby for your leadership.
For my own small effort as a steward of this land, I declare Labor Day Camp to be GLITTER FREE. When we wear or use glitter at camp, we are depositing it into the earth, the creek, and the historic buildings. As fun as it is, unfortunately glitter creates microtrash composed of plastic and metal, which simply does not go away. In order to take care of the Woodlands and protect the water, glitter will not be allowed at Labor Day Camp. Please consider compostable glitter options, and leave non-compostable glitter at home.
Looking forward to another excellent camp with you all!
Please reach out with any questions or concerns!
