  • Come on! Sign up! It is a place full of magic and mystery, and you’ll be with kindred spirits!

And WHEN you register…

Please remember to designate during registration all those folks you want as your “roomies.” This includes all the family members who want to be housed together, as well as folks who are friendly enough to want to be housed together. This will make housing assignments so much easier.  And remember, there are only a limited number of private rooms, so “I want to be alone” may not be possible for all who designate this. The earlier you apply, the more likely it is to happen.

Also, be certain to let us know of any mobility or accessibility issues on the registration form, so that we can place you in suitable accommodations.

Please register soon to save yourself $20 per adult. The early bird discount ends July 31st. You can register online at The Mountain website: (http://themountainrlc.org/event/2018-uufa-congregational-retreat/   or call Rachel Kinback’s office at The Mountain (828.526.5838 , extension 218) Monday-Thursday. She’ll be glad to help you.
