Templed Hills Camp Renewed & Refreshed


United Camps, Conferences and Retreats (UCCR) is pleased to announce our “Refreshed & Renewed” on site improvements at Templed Hills Camp and Retreat Center. The camp reopened in February 2018 after being closed for the past few years.

Until recently, the Ohio Conference of the United Church of Christ (UCC) owned two camps, Templed Hills Camp and Pilgrim Hills Camp. The Conference closed Templed Hills a few years ago and moved all of their programs to Pilgrim Hills Camp. In the Fall of 2017, Pilgrim Hills Camp was sold to a private party.

Templed Hills Camp has now been updated with many improvements as we renew our commitment to serving the camp and retreat center community.

A dedicated crew of volunteers from the owner group, the Ohio Conference of the United Church of Christ, along with our UCCR staff who manage the site, have worked earnestly to provide everything from updated day use meeting space to overnight retreat center lodging for group sizes 10 to 225 guests. The facility is available for any non-profit group to use year-round.

UCCR Marketing Manager, Laura Chamberlin, says, “We are so pleased with the Refreshed & Renewed campaign and excited to offer the refurbished space to returning groups and new groups for off-site meeting space, weekend workshops, retreats, family reunions, and week-long programs.”

The site, located in Bellville, Ohio, near 1-71, is just over an hour from both the greater Cleveland and Columbus areas.

UCCR's New Branding & New Website

Last weekend we launched our new website. Wow. We're very excited about it...and feel a bit like we've been able to ride the wave of user-friendly technology, i.e. moblile friendly and all. Plus, we know More Pictures, Less Words! We worked with Wildflower Marketing owner Lindsey Perry who did an outstanding job for us.

In conjunction with our new website, you will see a new logo and new branding for UCCR and each site. When you visit us on FB, everything is flowing visually with the UCCR brand. Many thanks to our Marketing Manager, Laura Chamberlin, for her work on the logo and re-branding.

UCCR has expanded in the last year to include and welcome Clover Woods in Iowa, Jesuit Retreat Center in Los Altos, and marketing services for a beautiful site on the shores of Crystal Lake in Michigan, Crystal Conference Center. 

Marketing-wise, we have added a Marketing Manager because, as you can imagine, we have a lot of ongoing research & outreach to our potential guests. We have traditionally reached out to religious groups, non-profit orgs, and schools. We are beginning to be more intentional about our materials targeting specific groups...yoga, martial arts, quilters, high school coaches, etc. 

As always, we welcome any kind of suggestions and groups you think might be good matches for any of our beautiful sites within the UCCR family. Thanks in advance for your connection!
