Did you know that UBarU was founded in 2001?
What a wonderful gift given to us by the Society of “Friends,” the Texas Quakers in 2001. The Quakers chose the Unitarian Universalist faith to care for this wonderful land in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. First Church Austin gratefully accepted the gift of “Quakerland” in trust for a larger Unitarian Universalist community, creating the Unitarian Universalist Friends Retreat Foundation to own and operate UBarU.
Our mission at UBarU Camp & Retreat Center is to provide a welcoming, peaceful place to gather for spiritual, educational, and recreational purposes in harmony with our Unitarian Universalist Principles and the land.
UBarU is a non-profit 501c3 organization relying upon usage fees and donations. Becoming a sustaining member allows us to continue to offer high-quality programs that create and strengthen ties among UUs and the larger community. Your sustaining membership also helps us to maintain our beautiful 142 acre facility. Please think about what UBarU means to you and our community and become a member today.
