CampUU / Hogwarts

fowkesFrom July 24-28, 2017, we continue the annual tradition of transforming First UU Church into a magical castle of fun and adventure. Students will have the opportunity to play Quidditch and Wizard Chess, as well as pursue studies of Herbology, Potions, Magical Creatures, and more! Afternoon activities include social action projects and field trips to local muggle sites.
