What Happened To Harry Potter Camp ??????

Northwoods has hosted Hogwarts and UU Camp off and on since 2008 . This has been a much loved camp theme with lots of enthusiasm, energy, and acceptance. It gave campers the opportunity to not only explore magic, but weave our values into something we could proudly share with the community. In June of 2020, JK Rowling began making anti-trans statements. As she was called out on these, she tried explaining herself, but ultimately went back to her original offensive statements. This has continued throughout the past 2 years. As such, Northwoods no longer feels comfortable giving even the slightest impression that we support her anti-trans views. 

Over the past few years, summer camp has morphed into something that we alone have created. The classes, beliefs, topics, and themes have taken on a life of their own separate from the JK Rowling “Harry Potter” series. While some of the structure remains the same ( 4 houses, professors, prefects, some of the subjects), the rest is of our own design based on our Unitarian Universalist beliefs and values and the needs of our community. This camp has grown every year through the work of our youth and has become a camp of which we can be proud.

This year we will move forward with integrity while still providing a camp that brings magic to so many of us once a year. After all, there is so much more magic in the world other than what Harry Potter brings. While families and campers will not notice a huge difference, we will know that we are doing what is right and true by siding with justice, equity and fairness for all while supporting the rights of everyone in our communities. We will continue to share our beliefs and values in a fun, magical and mysterious way so that all who enter our hallowed halls will feel loved and accepted. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me with the contact information below.
