Mission – Vision – Values
UCCI Mission Statement
We will love God, all others, and the earth by providing sanctuary, practicing hospitality, and performing ministry.
Bringing our mission to life
Moon Beach, Daycholah Center, and Cedar Valley bring this mission statement to life every day at each site. We offer a peaceful reprieve from the stresses and demands of the world, if only for a few days or a week. Our programs are open to anyone regardless of race, color, ethnic background, sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation. We have program offerings for people of all ages. We make every effort to accommodate differing abilities in our programs, in our facilities, and on our grounds. We celebrate our differences and explore our similarities.
Our goal is to warmly welcome all people, provide delicious and healthy meals, and offer comfortable and attractive facilities where our guests will feel at home. Most of all, we strive to make your experience with us memorable and meaningful for you.
United Church Camps, Inc. is the outdoor ministry program of the Wisconsin Conference of the United Church of Christ , its member congregations, and ecumenical partners. As followers of Jesus, and relying on God’s sustaining Spirit, the United Church Camps Inc. Board of Directors, staff and volunteers will faithfully live and support our Mission Statement.
We hope you will join us at one of our many camps, retreats, and other gatherings at our beautiful sites!
UCCI’s campuses, Cedar Valley, Daycholah Center, and Moon Beach, are located on the ancestral homelands of the Ho-Chunk, Menominee, and Ojibwa Nations. We acknowledge these First Nations communities who have stewarded this land throughout the generations and pay respect to their elders past and present.
Valuing Diversity Statement
We’re on a journey. Diversity is an integral part of our history, culture, and identity. We believe differences are valuable. We’re committed to growing our network of people, programs, and tools with the goal of helping our staff and volunteers become visible and voluntary allies in the world. Our journey includes making room for both a top-down and bottom-up approach, giving people at every level the freedom to address these initiatives. It is our deepest desire to foster an environment where everyone feels supported, celebrated and safe to be exactly who they are.
