The Mountain UU Retreat & Learning Center, located about an hour south of WCU in Highlands, NC, is once again welcoming SUUSI participants to stay before and after SUUSI as a way to make your journey easier. Lodging, which includes meals, is available on Saturday, July 13 and Saturday, July 20. You are invited to relax and discover The Mountain, one of the premier UU camp and conference centers in the USA. Created by SUUSI attendees who wanted SUUSI year-round, it is now in its 39th year.
Enjoy 40+ miles of natural vistas from atop the Highlands Plateau overlooking pristine National Forests and surrounding mountaintops in the summer cool of 4200’ elevation. Ted Wisniewski, Executive Director, will lead a “meet and greet” to introduce you to this magical place and its diverse programs.
There are also a number of options for hikes that begin on trail heads there. The quaint village of Highlands, long-famous summer escape for well-todo families, offers visiting and fine shopping options. Staff can suggest additional excursions nearby.
Special SUUSI rates (per person), including food: 0-6 years: free; 7-12: $20; 13-17: $36, 18+: $60/per night. ADA-compliant accommodations are available.
