Fall Retreat at Jackson’s Point Conference Centre

The fall retreat kicks off our season for all UCC choristers and registrants to our Living Arts program. We have found that the retreat is integral to the friend-making process, and is a significant motivator for integration and overall program enjoyment. As such, it is a mandatory event for all members of the UCC ensemble. Chamber Chorus members attend overnight from Saturday, September 16 to Sunday, September 17. All other members attend only on Sunday, culminating in our Parent Orientation at pick up on Sunday.

All choristers must register for this event using the form below. Deadline for registration is Friday, September 1 as our final numbers and payment must be submitted to the Conference Centre by this date. There is a $48 (+HST) fee for this day retreat, which covers all food, activities, and use of the multi-space facility for the day.

Chamber Chorus members, your retreat begins on Saturday, September 16. There is a $148 (+HST) fee for this overnight retreat, which covers all food, lodging, activities, and use of the multi-space facility for the weekend.

 

 

New Choristers: If you are new to the UCC program you will quickly discover that the annual fall retreat is nothing to be nervous about. There are many new people, just like you, and we design the retreat with community integration in mind. By the end of the day you will be laughing with new friends and enjoying the company of excellent people.
