Outdoor Ministries Association

Working together as a significant partner in the ministry and future of the church, OMA seeks to advise, connect and advocate on behalf of the network of persons responsible for Outdoor Ministries in the United Church of Christ.



Located on the shores, in the mountains, overlooking grand mountain ranges, in the forest or on the plains, UCC Camps and Retreat Centers serve local congregations, non-profit groups, families, individuals and other business groups year 'round.


Camp programs, a compliment and extension of the Christian Education mission of the local and wider church, embrace diversity and understanding.

From the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in New Hampshire to the majestic mountains of California -- and at more than 60 sites in between -- thousands of guests of all ages and backgrounds discover and deepen their faith though encounters with God in creation and Christian community.




The Outdoor Ministry Association UCC works to support and encourage the staff, volunteers, board members and conferences at these special places; to promote outdoor ministries in all areas of the church; and to celebrate the many wonders of God's nature!
