The Outdoor Group is a recreational and social group that meets the second and fourth Saturday during the cool months, plus New Year’s Day, to share an outdoor experience, primarily hiking. We welcome and encourage everyone interested in having some active fun outdoors to join us. No commitment is necessary. Come when you can, no excuses necessary when you can’t. For more information, please contact

I hope everyone is staying safe and all in your family are healthy.

Put it on your calendar! The Outdoor Group is planning on holding our season opener campout again – finally! It looks like it may be safe enough for us to gather again outdoors. If that changes, we will not be doing this; however, right now we have the group reservation, and we are planning on moving forward with plans to be there.

Friday, September 24 through Sunday, September 26, we have a reservation at the O’Leary Group campground at Sunset Crater National Monument outside of Flagstaff. Friday evening we gather for an informal dinner and conversation. Saturday morning is a group hike, and Saturday evening is great fun around a campfire, sharing stories, cooking hotdogs, roasting marshmallows. There is no better way to connect with fellow UUer’s!

More details will be forthcoming beginning the first part of September. For now, save the date! If you and your family love the outdoors, you will not want to miss this annual event.
