Founded in 1988, Bayside Camp aims to provide a nurturing "family" atmosphere for singles and families of all configurations and traditions. We are mostly (but not exclusively) Unitarian Universalists, but welcome all. Bayside is a small (40-60 person) family summer camp held at the Pilgrim Center on the southern shores of Green Lake, Wisconsin during the second week of July (Sunday, 9 July to Saturday, 15 July 2016).
The activities for kids and adults are organized by a small but enthusiastic group of experienced (or new!) Bayside campers who either volunteer their time or work in exchange for a complementary (comp!) week of camp.
Bayside offers adult workshops and worship services, with quality child care and youth programming during the morning adult activities. Youth activities will be facilitated by Pilgrim Center Staff. A detailed schedule will be mailed to campers a week or two before camp.

I come to Bayside for my yearly spiritual sustenance. I’m with kindred spirits and my boys run free, from the foosball game in the dining hall, through the woods and by the lake in a safe, loving environment where toddlers, tweens, and teenagers hang out in hammocks, play games, swim and sing and laugh like one, big family. We get to see many of the same families, year after year. It’s a place I come to feel grounded, where I can laugh, let some tears run down, sing a lot, take walks along the edge of the lake, not worry about my kids, and roast marshmallows by a campfire. This year there were 60 of us and we called ourselves a tribe.
