Welcome to
Holston Camp and Retreat Center

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 supply with independence, self-reliance, curiosity, creativity and faith. 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’d love to host your group conference or retreat.  Take a week in the summer to build your team spirit with 4-Square and ziplines, test your mettle with the challenge course or rock climbing, and spend time in quiet reflection – taking in the glory of God’s creation in our mountain sanctuary. Or, use Holston Center as your base camp for our guided excursions – whitewater rafting and kayaking, horseback riding, hiking, and more. Our summer guests love the cooler, high country experience Holston offers.
