Annual Retreat: May 3-5

Come join our UUCM community for a weekend of intergenerational fellowship and fun at Walker Creek Ranch, 1700 acres of beautiful rolling hills just 20 miles west of Novato.

The Retreat provides a unique opportunity to strengthen our community. We encourage everyone to attend, especially new members and inquiring not-yet-members. At the retreat, we have a unique opportunity to set aside our busy schedules and electronic devices, and share singing, dancing, and the beautiful outdoors together, as well as sharing the ideas and values that we hold so strongly as Unitarian Universalists.

Lodging: You have a choice of accommodations: either Semi-private rooms with 2, 3, or 4 beds (linens provided,) and shared baths, or Economy dormitory bunk bed cabins with rooms for 8-10 people (bring your own sleeping bags & pillows.) Camping is available at reduced cost (either motor-home parking or tent-camping with your own tent).

Meals: The full program (from Friday evening to Sunday morning) includes Friday dinner, 3 meals on Saturday, and Sunday breakfast. The delicious and healthy meals are prepared on site by the Walker Creek staff and served in the central dining hall. Vegetarian, Vegan, and Gluten-free requirements are accommodated.
