Former Pelican Discount

Star Island welcomes any former employee to come back and attend the full length of any conference. And we’ll provide 50% off your room and board.

When you come back with the Former Pelican Discount you have the option to attend any conference — from one like the weeklong International Affairs Family Conference which has a large number of former Pels already attending, to one like Pel Reunion over Labor Day weekend where you’ll definitely find Pels from many different generations.

Our Mission

Our mission since 1915 is to hold and maintain Star Island and such other property as the Corporation may hold or acquire, as a center for religious, education, and kindred purposes consistent with the principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create on Star Island an environment that frees all who come to renew spiritually, explore matters of consequence, and gain knowledge about the world as it might ideally be.
