COMPASSION CAMP

Compassion Camp is a week-long summer day camp for middle and high school students sponsored by the First Congregational Church of Woodstock and the East Woodstock Congregational Church.  The camp provides service learning for youth in a variety of local settings as well as leadership training for older youth.  Our campers have volunteered at local sites such as the Center of Hope in Southbridge, Thompson Ecumenical Empowerment Group, and the People’s Harvest Garden in Pomfret.

GIV2 NORTHEAST

GIV2 (Give Squared) NorthEast is a program of service learning for youth in grades 7-12. We collaborate with several other area churches to gather for local outreach activities four times per year. Our “Giv2 Northeast” chapter is one of many sponsored by the CT Conference of the UCC.  Join our facebook group “Giv2 Northeast” to see pictures of our recent events and find out what we’re all about.

CONFIRMATION

Confirmation is offered for youth in grades 9 and above.  The program of study and experiential learning is lead by the pastor and lay leaders to help youth prepare for membership in the church.  Our confirmands have a tradition of taking a weekend retreat to visit the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City and Riverside Church.
