Niagara Tour 2018

Tours help build community. They shape and solidify friendships that will last a lifetime. We know this because UCC has been touring for almost 20 years. We have witnessed friendships blossom, and we have seen them hold well into adulthood for so many of our alumni.

This 2018 UCC TOUR is designed to be accessible to all while keeping all of the fundamental touring experiences of a larger tour intact. It is more than just an exploration of this iconic Canadian region on Canada Day. It is a community building adventure, the true results of which will be measured in the currency of life experiences.

Departing on Saturday June 30, our tour takes place over the Canada Day weekend. Parents are most welcome to attend. In particular, we welcome parents who would like to experience the benefits of tours first-hand, and we have a couple of special activities planned just for you!

Itinerary

SATURDAY JUNE 30 – MORNING

We’ll be getting an early start from The Heintzman House, traveling by convoy to the beautiful Niagara peninsula. Our bikes await, and we will spend the balance of the morning exploring the extraordinary wine country of Niagara-on-the-lake on wheels. Our bike tour will include a stop and tour at a local winery, and a picnic lunch.

SATURDAY JUNE 30 – AFTERNOON

We’ll start the afternoon by checking in to our host hotel for the first night of our tour – The Queen’s Landing. The extraordinary setting will provide a backdrop for our first Quackenbush match on the beautiful lawns. On to the charming town of Niagara-on-the-lake where we will perform in the outdoor gazebo, begin our weekend EBL, and grab an ice cream from Cows Ice Cream on the main strip. Then back to the Queen’s Landing where we will get dressed for our welcome dinner.

SATURDAY JUNE 30 – EVENING

As the sun sets in Niagara-on-the-lake, we’ll discover some of the history of the area on a guided “Ghost Walk”. Back at our hotel enjoy home-made cookies for a late-night snack while we settle down to Bedtime Stories with Brian & Michelle.

SUNDAY JULY 1 – MORNING

We begin our day with a breakfast buffet at Queen’s Landing. After our performance as a guest choir at a historic gem in the heart of Niagara-on-the-lake we will break into smaller groups for lunch and the start of our CANADA DAY EBL (Let’s find out how well people know their country!).

SATURDAY JUNE 30 – AFTERNOON

Our host hotel for the second leg of our tour is Great Wolf Lodge. So, let the water park fun begin!

SATURDAY JUNE 30 – EVENING

After a buffet dinner at Great Wolf, we’ll head to the mighty Niagara Falls, to explore the area and find seats for a dazzling Canada Day fireworks display over the falls. Our evening ends once again with a second round of home-made cookies and the conclusion of our dramatic Bedtime Stories with Brian & Michelle.

MONDAY JULY 2 – MORNING

Enjoy a buffet breakfast before heading back into the Water Park at Great Wolf for some morning fun.

MONDAY JULY 2 – AFTERNOON

The Niagara Butterfly Conservatory is set in the beautiful parklands of Niagara. In this setting we will make a cultural creation that will serve as a tour momento for each touring chorister. And finally, the gardens of Niagara will be our stadium for the final installment of Quackenbush 2018
