United Camps, Conferences and Retreats (UCCR), a non-profit camp and retreat management cooperative, has announced seasonal specials to encourage groups to experience the splendors of the fall and winter months in a natural setting. At this time of year, it is a great opportunity for family gatherings, new year's renewal retreats, and snow weekends in front of the fire.
The seasonal specials typically include two nights and five meals. This year, UCCR is offering specials through February 28 at two of their camp facilities, Camp Cazadero in the Sonoma hills, and Community of the Great Commission in the Sierra Nevada foothills.
"The autumn and winter seasons are incredibly beautiful times of the year to take your family gathering or small group to a quiet location in a natural setting. Availability is a plus and the offerings are more cozy and private than a hotel setting," says Tina Heck, Marketing Director at UCCR.
Many retreat centers offer the options of either doing your own cooking or having the retreat staff prepare meals for you. "This kind of getaway adds a more personal touch when your family can simply occupy a retreat house or center to themselves," says Heck.
