COMMUNITY STANDARDS! It is our expectation that all attending the retreat do so with an awareness of responsibility to and for the GNOUU community, and will follow federal, state and local laws, as well as rules of the park, and with our UU principles and congregational covenants of right relations in mind. All youth and children attending do so under the supervision of their parents or guardians.
