United Camps, Conferences and Retreats (UCCR) is excited to announce a call for program leaders looking for space to hold their programs. UCCR has three camp and retreat centers in the Sierra Nevada available for day use or overnight retreats. As the organization moves toward 2020, UCCR is reinvigorating its efforts to serve the non-profit community by hosting groups that need locations for day training or overnight lodging programs.
All three sites are unique and offer a variety of indoor and outdoor meeting areas, recreational opportunities and lodging options. With almost 50 years in camp, conference and retreat center management, UCCR provides hospitality, food service, and lodging. With today’s continual connectivity, people want to get back to nature and decompress in a beautiful setting while enjoying the benefits of food service and recreational choices.
The first site, Community of the Great Commissions (CGC), is located in Foresthill, CA and serves group sizes 10-104 people. CGC is offering fall and winter specials which begin October 1, 2018 and run through February 28, 2019. Specials include homemade meals and overnight lodging with discounts. Group leaders can focus on their program while site staff take care of the cooking and cleaning.
Secondly, Applegate JRC is located in Placer County, conveniently located just above Auburn. As one of our most popular and busy sites, groups can take advantage of a variety of meeting spaces and lodging options including the newer Oak Lodge. Oak Lodge has 12 rooms, each room sleeps 4, attached conference rooms and a beautiful screened in porch with rocking chairs to seat 20.
Camp Lodestar is in Calaveras County, located above Jackson in the Sierra Nevada Foothills, and can host groups size of 12 to 165. Camp Lodestar offers 450 acres of hiking. Indian Grinding Rock State Historical Park is nearby.
"These Sierra foothills sites offer guests a great opportunity to enjoy the forests and views while enjoying hospitality services," said Tina Heck, UCCR Director of Communications & Reservations.
A video tour of each site is available online along with a photo gallery of each site.
