The Southeast Winter Institute in Mid-Florida is a one-week Unitarian Universalist intentional community, which provides religious, inspirational, and educational growth oriented programming. SWIM was founded, and continues, to celebrate the spirit, to promote community, and to nurture connections among people of diverse ages, backgrounds, abilities, and interests. In so doing, SWIM strives to promote our Unitarian Universalist principles.
SWIM is a gathering to form an intergenerational intentional community based on Unitarian Universalist principles and values. It nurtures open communication, inclusiveness, spirituality, and growth. It is an inspirational and safe place to play, grow, and take risks in a supportive environment, encouraging self-awareness and personal responsibility unhindered by limiting societal expectations.
SWIM is an all-volunteer organization of participants who are enthusiastic, talented, diverse, and committed to creating a joyous experience.
SWIM celebrates diversity both within and outside our community and expects all participants to demonstrate personal responsibility and respect for self and others as well as our environment.
SWIM offers a myriad of experiences and opportunities that are challenging and nourishing to mind, body, and soul. Some of our activities are workshops, trips, worship, art, dance, music, campfire, and athletics.
