The Retreat to the Woods is now a longstanding First Unitarian Society tradition. Every Fall, members and friends of the Society have been gathering at a camp within an hour’s drive of the Twin Cities for a weekend of fun, community activities. For the last several years, we’ve camped at Baker Park which has a wonderful central lodge, cabins, and places to pitch tents for the more hardy.
This is a time for members of our community to get to know one another better through intergenerational community activities including singing around the campfire, story telling, games, hikes, canoeing, naturalist guided nature walks, bike rides, star gazing and anything that that a group of people are interested in. Part of the fun is in making meals and cleaning up together. This is also simply a time to get away from one’s regular pursuits and read a book or contemplate the meaning of life.
The dates for 2017 are October 6-8, but registration is now closed.
