Looking for Camp Site / retreat center for the Youth Leadership & Social Justice Camp

By Nanda Shewmangal in Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta 11 months ago | 699 views Link:

We’re in the middle of planning for the Youth Leadership and Social Justice Camp and need a site that can host our group.  Because UUCA does not have showers, we need to take the camp to a location that offers overnight lodging and meals. 

If anyone knows of a retreat center or campsite or farm area or any place where we can have our camp for about 20 to 30 youth, please reply to this post with their contact info or email me at  Thank you!

Hello Nanda,

Your post reminded me of something from many years ago, when I was a teen and we would have youth conferences at UUCA and other UU places in southern cities. The hosting congregation would provide a form of home hospitality during the youth conference. What this meant was that various people in the congregation would offer their homes as a place to take showers. This did involve some arranging, because it meant that someone had to drive to and from homes taking teens and returning them. Anyway, at the homes, the youth were able to take showers and that’s how we handled that aspect of youth conferences. If that seems workable I would be glad to have some young people come to my house to take showers. I live close to UUCA.

As for places other than UUCA to host a youth conference, there is a state park in Winder, Ga. called Ft. Yargo. It has yurts and I’m sure there are showers in the campground. There is also High Falls State Park and it, too, has yurts and shower buildings in the park. That’s near Jackson, Ga. Each of those places are about an hour from Atlanta.
