Pilgrim Heights Retreat Center was owned by the Iowa Conference of the United Church of Christ; but as of October, 2007, operations were transitioned to Our Sacred Space, Inc.

In October 2007, Our Sacred Space, Inc. (OSSI) a 501c3 non-profit organization, was borne of the need to successfully build and manage the camp and retreat programming facilitated through Pilgrim Heights Camp & Retreat Center in Montour, IA.  In January of 2008 the management of the facility was transitioned from the IA Conference UCC to OSSI.
