For the past few decades, a group from our UUCC congregation has spent Memorial Day weekend at the Rocky Gap State Park. This year, our trip will be virtual. No bugs, no dirty shared bathrooms, no mud and mess (unless you choose to keep it real).
We are very grateful to Tim Estell, Liam Estell, and Teagan McLaughlin for making this virtual camping experience happen, and we invite you and your family to join us this Memorial Day weekend, May 23 – 25!
How to Virtually Camp With Us
Please join us for camping using our Discord server: https://discord.gg/vHqNSHy
You do not need to create an account. Anyone can go to Discord.com and select “Open Discord” to run in their browser. It will create a temporary user and allow you to participate in groups without providing an email or real identity to Discord (but you will need to identify yourself to our UUCC admins so they can let you in). This may be ideal for kids or the cautious. When you close the browser your temporary username will go away. Registering gives you the same username and allows you to share your screen or video – but it’s optional.
There is also a UUCC Rocky Gap Memorial Day Camping Trip Facebook Group that you may wish to join.
Events & Activities
- Join us Sunday night at 9 pm on Discord for stargazing with Greg! We’ll be in the #General voice channel where Greg will screenshare his telescope. And of course this all depends on cloud cover in Catonsville.
- We are looking forward to long running voice chats (in the #Stitch+Knit channel), dedicated youth channels for voice and text, and a #Music channel with boosted audio quality for some performances.
- There will be some structured activity hosted for various age groups – such as a creative mode Minecraft server, or some stargazing from a camera enabled telescope. And some of our traditional camping trip games like Werewolf.
See you at The Gap!
