UCCR and UCC OMA Connection

Just had a great call with a couple of Board Members from the United Church of Christ Outdoor Ministries Association (OMA). It is a compelling thing in these days of the decline of the mainline church in America, and the subsequent loss of financial resources, to forge new partnerships between organizations who are passionate about camp, outdoor ministries, and the residential camp experience.

Emergency Response Plans

UCCR directors are gathered today to review and engage with our site’s emergency response plans. Given the extreme drought in California, we are preparing for what could be a challenging summer regarding water shortages, wildfires, and drought conditions. Though we are hopeful that we do not have to fully put these plans into action, we are on the ready.
