What’s the place like? Ferry Beach is a small UU conference center on a seven-mile stretch of sandy beach in Maine. It’s a collection of rustic, wood-frame buildings from the last century, most have been rennovated! The main building has a lobby with a fireplace and comfy chairs and a wrap-around porch that faces the ocean. There is a huge dining room with a nice big porch where we share catered meals.
Who should go? Families, singles, couples, empty-nesters, parents of adolescents wanting a weekend away, parents of young children wanting someone to take a turn holding the baby—we all seem to blend in a sweet, amicable, pleasant way. Many important friendships begin at Ferry Beach.
What do we do? Some of us stay put at the beach, playing vollyball, tennis, basketball or creating arts and crafts all weekend. Others of us go out to the museums in Portland, apple picking, on environmental ecology trips, kayaking or to the outlets for shopping. We applaud amateurs at the Saturday night talent– no talent show and just generally get to know one another, share meals, share parenting, and have a wonderful time.
It’s the best way to connect with the community!
