Come to the 23rd annual UU RenUUal Retreat at Camp Alta Mons in Shawsville and meet fellow UUs from Roanoke and the NRV. Enjoy camping, hiking, exploring, cook-outs, campfires, and singing at this fun, laid-back weekend. Start camping at 4 PM on Friday, August 31 and enjoy a potluck dinner at 6:30 PM. The retreat continues until Sunday at noon, but attendees are welcome to come for as little or as much time as desired. No need to pre-register – just show up. The campsite costs $2.50/person/night. If planning to come just for the day or the campfire, a small donation would be appreciated. 

Bring camping equipment, cooking and eating utensils, food, drink, musical instruments, sports equipment, swimwear (splashing in the creek or at the waterfall), hiking boots, bicycles, a good book and a penchant for fun. 

Follow this link for directions. When you enter the facility, turn right at the Camp Post. Follow the gravel/dirt road to the camping area. You’ll have to ford a small stream (Purgatory Creek). No tent? You can sleep on bunk beds in “The Hut“.
