United Camps, Conferences and Retreats (UCCR), which provides camp and retreat property management and hospitality services, is happy to announce two new on-site facility directors at Templed Hills Camp & Retreat Center.
The couple, Andy Lacefield and Miranda Nousek, will serve as Site Director and Associate Site Director of Hospitality, respectively, at Templed Hills Camp. While Lacefield will focus on the property upkeep and maintenance, Nousek will run the office and oversee hospitality to guests.
With a large campus which can offer lodging and meal service for groups from size 10 to 300+, there is plenty to keep the couple busy as they step into their roles. Templed Hills Camp is owned by the Ohio Conference of the United Church of Christ. Both Lacefield and Nousek have been involved with the Ohio UCC camp programs since their youth. “We have loved coming to retreats here and are so happy to work together and put our passion and enthusiasm to help other groups enjoy this beautiful property as much as we have,” says Nousek.
The Camp and Retreat Center has recently enjoyed many updates and enhancements to meet a wide variety of needs. Templed Hills is open for rental by any non-profit group, school, religious group, family reunion, and special event or other groups looking for camp and retreat space..
“We are so proud of all the list of improvements, we put them on our website,” Lacefield says with a smile.
“We are happy to become part of the UCCR family of camp and retreat staff, ” says Nousek. “We want to encourage groups of all types to contact us about having them stay with us. We give free property tours and want to be here as a community resource.” Lacefield says.
Templed Hills is part of United Camps, Conferences and Retreats, a non profit cooperative which manages 13 sites in the USA.
