The Summer Sundays program will feed our hearts, minds, and bodies with free lunch, arts, music, and fun activities designed to build resilience, self-awareness, and community connections.


Special Guests

Each week, we will feature at least one special guest who has some wisdom to share with the children and adults who come. Guests include Wendy Webber from Marlboro to teach compassionate communication, William "Spaceman" Lee from Craftsbury will talk about team spirit and sportsmanship, Peter King from Bakersfield will talk about polyhedral geometry, Tom Beck from Cabot will share teachings from the Abenaki tradition, Christyn King will give a beginning yoga class, Sarah Spletzer will lead a dance, and Janice Walrafen from Plainfield will give a mask making workshop. 


Curriculum Materials

We are indebted to the educational materials provided by the Unitarian Universalist Association. We have removed most references to religion, where possible, to make the materials accessible to everyone.
