Seek the quiet, peaceful sanctuary of the wilderness, a quiet punctuated only by the sound of the wind in the trees and bird song?

Worship in the Grove of The Ancients, at Sunset Point, or together, singing around a beautiful campfire.

See the banner of the Milky Way strung across the night sky and feel the wonder of our universe?

Imagine warm days and cool nights nearly year round and the peace of camping alone or with friends & family in a forested valley?

Welcome to SAWUURA. Located seven miles south of Young, Arizona at an altitude of 5500 feet, SAWUURA is a beautiful 109 acres, nestled in the heart of the Sierra Ancha Mountains and surrounded by thousands of acres of the Tonto National Forest.

Driving time from Phoenix or Tucson, Flagstaff or Prescott is approximately four hours.

Note: A high clearance vehicle is recommended for the last ~2 miles down FS238 to camp.

Tent sites sites are nestled in the trees close to the creek bed. Picnic tables, shade awnings and an outdoor kitchen are provided in a central gathering area. There are two cabins open to members and guests. There is a seasonal, gravity-fed water system that brings well water to sinks and solar showers near the campsites.

SAWUURA hosts a campout every Memorial Day and Labor Day, where UUs and their family & friends are invited to tent camp, share meals & kitchen duties, activities and worship. Relax with friends and deepen your spiritual connection with nature, play, hike, bird/star watch, sing and cook around the campfire.
