Camp de Benneville Pines Annual Meeting

Camp de Benneville Pines is a Unitarian Universalist retreat center on a 16-acre campus in a tall tree forest at an elevation of 6,700 feet. It is an independent 501C(3) and is owned by the UU congregations who are geographically in the Pacific Southwest District (PSWD). This geographic area will be referred to as the Camp de Benneville Pines Service Area. 

Camp de Benneville Pines (de Benneville) will hold its annual meeting by Zoom following the PSWD meeting at 9:00 am, Saturday, April 17, 2021. Registration information is below. Delegates (who can certify through PSWD) will be required to approve a Bylaws change, to vote on the continuation of service for Board members, and possibly to vote for a new person to join the Board.

De Benneville has good news about stewardship initiatives including the Emergency Relief Fund, as well as plans to celebrate 60 years since its founding and a belated celebration for 25 years of service from our Executive Director, Janet James. You are encouraged to attend, participate, represent your congregation, join our stewardship activities, and nurture the sustainability of Camp de Benneville Pines.
