About Us

United Camps, Conferences and Retreats (UCCR), was created over 40 years ago so that nonprofit organizations could enjoy beautiful sites for their camping and retreat experiences. UCCR’s primary focus is to provide a setting and the hospitality that best fit the program needs of those groups we serve. Our mission is “Creating partnerships to provide positive life-changing experiences”. We fulfill our mission by fully supporting your program while you are enjoying one of our facilities.

We offer an intriguing selection of camps and conference centers. You’ll find us amid the coastal redwood forests, beside a lake or stream, and at the majestic reaches of the high Sierra. Because of the diversity of UCCR sites, we can meet a broad range of group needs and preferences. Our friendly reservations staff will help you find the site that best fits your needs. We take pride in offering safe, well-equipped sites and accommodations, outstanding food, and thoughtful services at moderate costs.

In addition to our site offerings, we have developed a strong and expanding program capability, highlighted by our Web of Life Field (WOLF) School, which offers programs to K through 8th graders and their teachers. The WOLF School offers 2-5 day residential outdoor science, history and group building programs at several sites in northern California, as well as in-class presentations and naturalists for hire. WOLF has partnered with Nature’s Classroom in Ohio to provide quality outdoor education programming at Pilgrim Hills Camp. The WOLF School’s goal is to foster an appreciation of the natural world through hands-on learning activities in the outdoors. Whether studying banana slugs with our skilled and friendly naturalists, practicing public speaking in town hall meeting activities, or singing by the campfire, your school children will return from our program excited to learn more about the web of life.

United Camps, Conferences and Retreats is a nonprofit management company that is open for membership. The owners of our sites are also nonprofit organizations and participate in UCCR on our Board of Directors as members of UCCR. Camps and retreats are operated cooperatively under a central administrative unit and through a unified budget. As a cooperative, we have greater strength and effectiveness than independently operated facilities. UCCR provides an efficient operational structure resulting in considerable financial savings and a higher quality of service for our members and the groups we serve. We welcome site owners who would like to explore becoming a member of United Camps, Conferences and Retreats.

Please enjoy our web site, and feel free to call us at (800) 678-5102 if you have any questions.

Rules for acceptance and participation in programs at UCCR are the same for everyone without regard to age, race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, handicap, or national origin.
