The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center, Inc. was founded in 1979 by a group of friends and Unitarian Universalists from across the southeast. They searched for somewhere they could deepen their engagement with their congregational communities and retreat with their families. When they found Little Scaly Mountain, they knew they discovered the right place and what it could become for so many.
Over more than 40 years, The Mountain has held true to its original vision and inspiration, serving as a nonprofit camp and conference center.
The Mountain is an ecologically-conscious retreat and learning center serving congregations, businesses, schools, and other Unitarian Universalist and community groups. Located on 4,200 foot high granite cliffs on the Eastern Continental Divide in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we offer a unique opportunity in gratitude to the unique ecology and history of the oldest mountains in the world. Come refresh your spirit in the natural beauty of these ancient mountaintops.
