About Us

The Mountain 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.

This ecologically-conscious retreat and learning center serves congregations, businesses, schools, and Unitarian Universalist and community groups. Located on 4200-foot-tall granite cliffs on the Eastern Continental Divide in the Blue Ridge Mountains, it offers a special opportunity to be grateful for the unique ecology and history of the oldest mountains in the world.
