2018 Program

Letting Go in the Desert June 18th-24th, 2018

Dear Friends,

While we are still four months away from the wonderful sunshine, spirituality, friends, and fellowship of WUULF, I am already getting giddy each time I think about being back at Ghost Ranch with you all!

The theme for this year is “Letting Go in the Desert”. Our world can be serious and all consuming, and sometimes we need to be reminded that we can let it go and just be. Whether that is being present in community, spirituality, or just with yourself, WUULF this year will offer opportunities to laugh, play, and appreciate our beautiful community and world.

For our main program, we are bringing back one of our most popular workshops, Improv with Dee Masters! With a BFA in theatre and an incredible ability to draw people into the moment, Dee will lead us in dancing, sharing, talking and laughter and through it all help us to build community. We are so excited to have him back with us again!

The Rev. Christine Robinson will be joining us as our community minister this year. Formerly the Senior Minister of First Unitarian Church of Albuquerque, Christine now works with the Pacific Western Region as a Congregational Life Primary Contact for Large Congregations. She comes with rave reviews and we are looking forward to joining her each morning around the wisdom tree for in-gathering!

For those of you who have yet to experience WUULF, we gather every morning for spiritual centering with our camp minister and again in the afternoon for social hour where we share fellowship and refreshments. Throughout the day, you can choose to attend workshops hosted by incredible community members, hike the epic landscape of Ghost Ranch, or just kick back under the Wisdom Tree. We will play games, tell stories, tie dye, drum, dance and sing throughout the week.

WUULF is a family camp. We provide programming for school age kids while their parents participate in adult programming. Kids in the middle and high school programs start the week with a challenge course to build a sense of community. The kids program also includes swimming, crafts, and hiking. Our young adults have the option of joining the adult program or to do their own thing. If you sign up as a young adult, you’ll hear from the young adult group leaders to collaborate about program plans.

Registration is now open for WUULF 2018 and will remain open until May 1 or until camp fills. To register, please visit http://reg.wuulf.org to sign up! I am happy to report that registration fees will remain the same as last year. The room rates include all three meals per day, while campers can choose to purchase all their meals on the registration form or select specific meals directly from Ghost Ranch. We also have scholarship funds available for registration. Indoor accommodations and RV campsites fill quickly, so don’t delay if you are interested in one of those options. As always camping with a tent or a pop-up is an affordable option, and the campground has excellent amenities, such as a recently renovated bathhouse, laundry, and an ice machine.

Please ask to join the WUULF Facebook page. It’s a great way to connect with folks before and after camp. We will contact you with e-mail updates as camp gets closer. Be sure to check your packing list in the catalog. The list has been compiled through years of experience camping at Ghost Ranch. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. All of us on the board look forward to welcoming you into the WUULF community.

Thanks to the many friends of the WUULF community whose photographs are featured in this catalog, including Mark Fesgen, the Probasco Family, Jill Forney, and members of the WUULF facebook group.
