From a FUUSN parent:
I asked our grown children what their favorite things were as kids on Sandy Island:
- “Kayaking around the island, s’mores and campfire, talent show, four square, softball, scavenger hunts. Freedom.”
- “Bocce, the softball game, ultimate frisbee, getting soda and snacks at the store, ping pong, walking around the island, basketball, swimming to the rock, foosball, air hockey.”
I remember them weeping as we pulled out of the parking lot on our way home.
Our adult son still goes to Sandy Island with his FUUSN friends . We wouldn’t miss it for the world.
***Make some family memories! Come to Sandy Island!***
Our annual retreat is on Memorial Day Weekend (May 27-29) on Sandy Island in Lake Winnepesauke in NH! This event is open to FUUSNites and their families/friends (no pets). Come to relax and make new connections in the FUUSN community, as well as renew existing ones.
This year we have 2 ways to register: online and on paper. Online registration is encouraged (use link below). Because we’re not yet set up to process electronic payments, you’ll still need to print & complete a brief fee calculation form and mail it along with a payment check and a self-addressed stamped envelope (so that we can send you your luggage tags). Please mail these items so that they are received by Friday, May 19th. If this deadline poses a problem for you, email Denise Bousquet at <email@example.com>.
Fees for Sandy Island this year: Adults (18 yrs.+) $250. Children/teens (2-17 yrs.) $155. Under 2: free. If financial assistance is needed, email Denise at <firstname.lastname@example.org> (All requests remain confidential).

We run our own activities during this retreat. This year, we’re especially in need of someone to lead the outdoor Sunday service. Contact Sandy Island Activities Coordinator Emily Gelbert <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Please address all activities-related questions to her.
