Registration for youth and children programming is here.
6th Grade —Maker Space
Influenced by the Maker Space movement, 6th graders will explore their UU identity though a combination of technology, art projects, exploration, and reflection.
7th Grade—Neighboring Faiths
Designed to introduce participants to a wide variety of faiths in a deep and respectful way, students learn to be “perfect strangers” as they study and visit different faith based communities. They will compare, contrast and develop their own beliefs, preparing them for the Coming of Age program. A highlight of this program are the field trips to various Houses of Worship.
6th-8th Grade: CASE (Community, Action, Service, Education)
This innovative and experiential program incorporates community-building, action, service, education, and fun! CASE partners with other church affinity groups and community partners for projects, actions, and events. CASE activities are held on occasional Friday evenings, including overnights, on Saturday afternoons, or during the coffee hours on Sundays. This program is designed for mature 6th graders, 7th graders, and 8th graders.
High School —Youth Group
High school students meet to explore and share their questions and answers about life, relationships, spirit, and social justice. Activities include campouts, retreats, social outings, guest speakers, worship and working on church and community service projects. Youth Group meets only at the 11:15 service.
Our Whole Lives (OWL)
Our Whole Lives (or OWL, as it is popularly called) is a life-span sexuality education program developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ. While the program reflects the values of these denominations, it is not a religious program. We offer the first grade, fifth grade, junior high, and high school levels of OWL.
Youth and the Arts
UUCA offers dynamic programming for youth that not only nurtures a developing faith but provides opportunities for artistic expression through the arts. For information on Children and Youth Choirs and our performing arts program, Chalice Theatre, see our Music and Arts page here.
