Welcome to
Holston Camp and Retreat Center

MISSION: To provide a safe environment to experience a transformation of mind, body, and spirit within a community of faith.

Since 1959, Holston has offered a summer camp for kids who are seeking a refuge from the seasonal heat and a sanctuary for spiritual, mental, and physical growth. Now, as a year-around facility, we welcome children of all ages to respond to a higher calling in the beautiful wooded mountains of Holston Camp and Retreat Center.

Holston has a tradition of small group camping with a big group plan. We welcome day and resident summer campers who are eager to step out of the mundane and embark on a journey of the mind, body and spirit. It’s a journey that requires a knapsack that we pack with compassion, curiosity, and creativity. We learn to work together, play together, and we learn to pray, sing, and worship together as a community of faith. We supply minds and bodies with skills essential to both social and character development with an emphasis on Christian values.

We would love to host your group conference or retreat.  We are open all year so guests can enjoy each season in the High Country. Spring is vibrant with wildflowers, bird songs, and blossoming flora. Take time in the Summer to build your team spirit with on- or off-campus activities, or spend time in quiet reflection in the cool mountain climate. Autumn offers spectacular colors and fall festivals at hand. Winter guests come to enjoy cold weather activities at the nearby ski slopes. Holston Center wishes to provide your group with an experience that transforms the mind, body, and spirit. We provide comfortable accommodations, delicious meals, challenging activities, and the serenity of a clear, mountain lake. We are open all year so make reservations to stay with us today.
