Coming up in October 2018
Rocky Bottom will host the first ever National Retreat for Blind Seniors. Blind seniors will travel from as far away as Utah and New York state for this unique experience. These golden girls and guys will learn from each other, and from a very knowledgeable staff. This get-away will imspire them to live the life they want. Blindness won't be holding them back.
The blind of South Carolina would like to welcome you to the Rocky Bottom Retreat and Conference Center of The Blind (RBRCCB). RBRCCB is located in the scenic mountains of northern Pickens County; on route to the summit of Sassafras Mountain. This 30-acre site is the perfect setting for professional functions, recreational activities and a place for you and others to relax and catch your breath. Its natural location is enhanced by two richly flowing streams which bound the camp property, offering delightful acoustic and scenic beauty. You need to see it to believe it.
Rocky Bottom Retreat and Conference Center of the Blind (RBRCC) is a year-round facility, owned and operated by the National Federation of the Blind of South Carolina.
In cooperation with local volunteers across the state, the National Federation of the Blind of SC developed Rocky Bottom Retreat and Conference Center to be a leisurely getaway. Since 1979, the members of the NFB of SC have built, managed, and maintained the facilities and grounds of this awesome retreat. An eight-member Board of Directors, made up of prominent local community leaders and members of The National Federation of The Blind, work in cooperation, to make Rocky Bottom an ideal mountain retreat.
Many individuals, organizations, non-profit groups, churches, scouts and others enjoy the pristine, secluded mountain setting. The NFB of SC members utilize Rocky Bottom retreat year-round to hold children's camp, two sessions of senior camp for blind senior adults 55 and over, fishing expeditions, seminars, board meetings, and retreats for local chapters. Rocky Bottom is available for rental by groups, families, friends, or just to get away alone. We'd love an opportunity to host you at our facility.
Our rental prices are comparable to that of other retreats and conference centers. Along with privacy and majestic views of surrounding landscapes, this is an amazing opportunity to get a view of nature in all of its glory. With the metropolitan city of Greenville, within driving distance and private trails just steps away, there is something everyone can enjoy. Rocky Bottom is a fabulous example of the best South Carolina's natural scenery has to offer.
