The SUUSI Teen Program is an intense community experience for people ages 14 to 17. Adult staff and teen leaders (older teens elected to lead their community during the previous SUUSI) work together to create a fun, safe and healthy place for teens to explore and grow.
The week is focused around large and small group interactions, where UU principles are developed and practiced. Each new day brings
Teens are always encouraged to participate with the wider SUUSI community, but for the most part the Teen dorm is the center of all teen life. This is where we share worship, space, laughter, tears, hugs, ideas, music, and games.
The Teen dorm is a very busy place with some sort of activity going on at all hours of the day and night.
The degree to which a teen participates is up to the teen and his or her parent(s) or guardian(s). Each day, teens can decide how to spend their time, but they are required to attend their touch group meetings, the evening’s activity, and 1am check-in. They are also strongly encouraged to attend a workshop or activity each day.
Teens are not required to live in the dorm, but teens not living in the dorm must be with their parent(s)/ guardian(s) during curfew hours (1am - 6am). If a teen decides to stay with his or her parent(s)/guardian(s) during curfew hours or if he or she will miss a required meeting for any reason (nature trip, workshop, etc) staff needs to be notified in advance.
For everyone’s safety, the only entrance and exit is through the front door. Parents/ guardians are encouraged to stop by at any time.
