Nestled in 18 acres of truly Albertan streams, trees and wildlife is the URSA Retreat Centre. A gathering place for small groups and organizations to reconnect and learn. Our retreat centre welcomes people of all abilities and supports a mission of inclusiveness and accessibility.
The retreat centre and land were obtained in 2009 by Universal Rehabilitation Service Agency (URSA) with a single purpose: to create a retreat space where all individuals, regardless of ability, can experience the beauty of a relaxing and calming retreat space. URSA has welcomed individuals with developmental disabilities and their families with a retreat space specially designed to suit their needs.
To cover the cost of the centre, and to ensure we can continue to make our space available to all, we invite groups who share our values of inclusiveness to rent our centre for private bookings.
