Eliot Institute creates and supports an inclusive community
of celebration, friendship, exploration, relaxation and joy
for Unitarian Universalists, their families and friends.

Who Comes to Eliot?

People young and old come to Eliot, from infants to seniors. Most are from Unitarian Universalist churches in British Columbia, Washington and Oregon.

Our camp is fully accessible to campers of all physical abilities.

Usually 20 or more churches will be represented. Some people come in extended family groups as large as 12, including non-church members. Many others come as singles. The summer conferences usually have around 250 participants and can be as high as 40% children and youth. Winter Eliot is especially popular with young adults. Most campers have attended in the past, but there are always newcomers as well.

Newcomers are always welcome!

==> Had an amazing week in the Young Adult Program! It tied in really well with the theme of the speaker, while also being quite unique. The coordinators were so great and kept things very fun! We had tons of variety in the activities we did each day, and when we had group discussions they both contributed comments and thoughts as well which I found really amazing and have never experienced that in the program before so that was great!!!
