YURTS
Our new "Outdoor Village" in the beautiful woods of Uskichitto, located just a two minute walk from main camp, is a special place to get back to basics and enjoy the outdoors.  Our two 20 foot diameter yurts, built on decks allow groups to have an awesome camping experience without the hassle of pitching tents.  The yurts keep you protected from the elements while allowing you to enjoy the woods.  Picnic tables and fire pits are right there for your convenience.  A great place for those who love the outdoors, including scouts, youth or small church groups.

 

 

 

RV PARK & TENT CAMPING
We have 16 full RV hook-ups (water, electricity and waste) situated close to our dining hall in main camp, surrounded by large moss covered oaks and native pines.  While camping you can take advantage of the camp's beautiful surroundings.  If you are interested in tenting at URC there are almost endless possibilities for places to set up your tent around camp.

 

MEALS, MEETING SPACE & RECREATION

 


DINING HALL
The Dining Hall can comfortably seat over 100 people for meals with almost 2,000 square feet of floor space, with additional covered patio seating available.  We provide excellent quality food service for any group of 20 or more.  Groups preparing their own meals have access to the retreat center's kitchen with 2 convection ovens, 6 burner range, commercial dishwasher, and refrigerator.  All pots, pans, utensils and serving ware you'll need are included in the rental charge for the kitchen and the dining hall.
We also have a large charcoal BBQ grill located next to the Dining Hall, and a Fire Circle just across the bridge, perfect for bonfires, hot dog cookouts and making s'mores!  There are numerous picnic tables around the retreat center - great for meals or just relaxing!




 

PAVILION
Our 1,600 square foot pavilion, completely re-modeled in 2008 has space for meetings, worship, celebrations and games.  A true multipurpose recreation hall located conveniently in the middle of camp for easy walking access from anywhere!



 

 

SWIMMING POOL
Newly re-painted and re-tiled in 2009, our 60’ x 30’ swimming pool, featuring our cool 8 foot pool slide is a perfect place to have fun. Whether splashing around or watching from the shaded umbrella seating area, the pool is a cool oasis on hot Louisiana afternoons. The pool may be rented by the hour, which includes the service of an American Red Cross certified lifeguard.


CHAPEL & PLACES FOR WORSHIP

 

 

OUTDOOR CHAPEL
URC has a great covered outdoor chapel right in main camp with benches, electrical outlets, lights and fans for special worship, Bible Study or reflection.  We also have two open air chapels, one in the woods near main camp, and our "Worship Point" chapel overlooking the pretty Uskichitto river.  There are two gazebos in main camp, which many people take advantage of for devotions and Bible Study.  Across the pond from the Dining Hall is a prayer memorial where you can sit and take time to listen to God.  Our Dining Room and Pavilion also are also ideal places for holding worship at URC.
