In the Spring, it can be quite cool. Plan to wear casual clothing for classes, and bring some outdoor clothing, if there are any outdoor activities in the schedule. Other items include: umbrella, notebook & pens, Bible, and flashlight.

Uchee Pines and the surrounding county are on Eastern Time. Because we are on the time zone border, you must manually set your smart time devices to Eastern to avoid being late to scheduled events or missing them altogether.

The seminars are not geared for children. Children coming with their parents must be under the supervision of an adult at all times, especially during meals. Children may not take part in the massage and hydrotherapy portions of the seminar. Because lodging is in short supply, children will usually share a room with their parents.

The closest airport is Columbus Airport (CSG), which is small to medium sized airport and may cost more. The least expensive airport near Uchee Pines is Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). From the Atlanta airport, you can take Groome Transportation to Columbus, Georgia. For a transportation fee, we can pick you up and drop you off at Columbus Airport or Groome Transportation in Columbus, GA.
