The evening schedule is beginning to take shape, but will continue to be refined over the summer. Here's how the after-dinner hours are shaping up (and all this cool stuff is included with your registration!):

Thursday Evening

Icebreakers. It is the first night and you want to get to know people, right? This is your opportunity to learn some interesting things about other people, and find people with similar talents and interests. No ice will be harmed during this event.

Leadership Workshops. Details TBD. Stay Tuned.

Night Hike. The forest at night is a completely different place than during the day! Join us as we learn to safely navigate at night using fox-walking skills, as well as our other senses. We' ll see a stunning example of rods vs. cones in action, and learn how to maximize chances for survival if lost in the woods at night.

Campfire. Sing, schmooze, and make s'mores around the evening campfire.

Friday Evening

Shabbat Service. Welcome Shabbat with prayer, music, and readings. Both an Egalitarian Service and a smaller Traditional minyan will be held.

Shabbat Coffeehouse. Our talented Mosaic members from the Atlanta area (and a couple from elsewhere) will showcase their talents and entertain us with a series of short sets. Once performers' names are confirmed, they will be provided here with a short bio.

Nature Slide Show with Dave Liebman. Our very own nationally-acclaimed nature photographer, Dave, returns for another signature presentation on the local flora and fauna. You'll be both amazed and amused by his sheer talent and dry wit. An event not to be missed!

Campfire. Sing, schmooze, and make s'mores around the evening campfire.

Saturday Evening

Havdallah: Celebrate the end of Shabbat with this beautiful service.

HEADLINE EVENT: Appalachian Dance with Diane Silver and Friends
Local caller and Mosaic Artist-in-Residence will teach us some basic circle dances, contra dances, clog dances and Israeli dances, while accompanied by live fiddle and guitar. We'll practice, change partners, practice some more, and so on. This is a GREAT way to meet people you may not have already met, get to know your friends a little better, learn a little about authentic local Appalachian folk dances, and have a whole lot of fun! You asked for a more participatory Headline Event than we've had the past couple years... and we aim to please! Later on, the fun continues around the campfire as Diane brings her songs and storytelling to a more intimate setting.

Sunday Evening

Council of Delegates Meeting and Mosaic Elections.

Workshops. We' ll have one set of workshops after dinner this year, then reconvene together for the biggest, baddest final campfire Mosaic has ever seen! Workshop details will be added over the summer as they are finalized. If you're interested in leading an evening workshop, please let us know!

Final Campfire. Bigger and better than the ones before, this campfire may have a skit or two thrown in for good measure. We'll say our goodbyes and schmooze long into the night.
