CanUUdle XIX

What’s CanUUdle all about?

CanUUdle is the annual con for Canadian Unitarian Universalist youth and their adult advisors. It’s a beautiful weekend where youth and adults create an amazing community, worship together, play and grow as spiritual beings. We’ll get together with the young adults of Chorus for the shared activities throughout the weekend, including the bridging dinner and ceremony. On even-numbered years when there is a full CUC Conference, we’ll join with adults and children for the Friday night Conference Ingathering, and Sunday worship and multigen day.

It’s a weekend full of fun, laughter, games, discussion, thought, and above all, love and friendship—the special kind that can only be found in UU community!

Youth from all four CUC regions lead the CanUUdle staff, planning the program and developing valuable leadership skills while they’re at it. The CanUUdle community also celebrates bridging, as our older youth transition to being young adults. CanUUdlers between 17 and 20 can join the Friday afternoon young adult gathering (ACM years only), the Saturday evening bridging dinner, and may choose to “bridge” during the bridging ceremony.

About Sliding Scale Pricing:

We strive to make our events as financially accessible as possible. Sliding scale fees are designed to allow participants to choose how much they are able to pay for registration. If you are unsure how much you should be paying, here are a few words about sliding scale to think about:

“When I pay more, I know that I am helping others to access the event. When I pay in the middle, I know I am helping the organizers cover costs. And when I pay at the bottom, I know I am letting my community hold me and support me. All of these are wonderful and acceptable ways of participating.”

“Please be mindful that if you purchase a price at the lowest end of the scale when you can truthfully afford the higher ticket prices, you are limiting access to those who truly need the gift of financial flexibility. Being honest with yourself and your financial situation when engaging with sliding scale practices grows strong and sustainable communities.” (Source: Sliding Scale Why, How, and Sorting Out Who)
