Why a Winter Getaway

Winter may not seem like the most popular time to unplug from the day-to-day and get away for a group retreat. However, the woods are quiet and the winter season invites us into a time of internal quiet as well. Now is a great time to plan your winter retreat. Perhaps your team, group or family is in need of a time that can be set aside for reflection on 2104 and planning hopes and dreams for 2015.

WOLF Summer Nature Camp Made Tracks

 WOLF Summer Nature Camp Made Tracks in August!

Fall is Perfect for Retreats!

Kick off your Fall season with a Weekend Getaway. September and October are optimum times of the Autumn season to get outside…the weather is perfect…cool mornings and evenings and warm days make for lovely retreat weekends. Some of our sites will take groups as small as 10 people! Visit the Sierra Nevada or the coastal redwoods for a great experience enjoying the natural beauty available to us through the facilities managed by United Camps, Conferences and Retreats.

UCCR partners with UCC Ohio

 Beginning in September, UCCR will expand beyond California for the first time in it’s 44 year history! The Ohio Conference of the United Church of Christ has partnered with UCCR to provide Management Services to Pilgrim Hills Camp & Conference in Brinkhaven, Ohio. We at UCCR are very excited to extend our organization to another state…and happy to be able to bring our core compentency to a beautiful camp. Stay tuned for an upcoming press release!

Spring at UCCR Sites

 I visited Camp Lodestar and Jesuit Retreat Center of the Serra last week- both in the California Sierra foothills. The intense colors of the spring bloom are getting close to hitting their peek. The colors and vibrancy of the different colors layered upon the hills and waving in the wind for me define the foothills each year. The colors in Camp Lodestar’s enormous meadow (50-60 football fields size!) are beautiful. At both sites, there is a variety of trees blooming and evergreen trees waking up to spring.

Ohio Camp a Possibility for UCCR

 During my recent trip to Ohio I had the privilege of meeting many of the key members of the Ohio UCC Conference in the division where Pilgrim Hills and Templed Hills Conference Centers are located. I presented the UCCR Feasibility Study to this group. Like me they see this can be a viable partnership and voted in favor of a partnership. The next step is taking the vote to the state board level of the UCC.
