What makes Holston Camp and Retreat Center unique is our location in the High Country of western North Carolina where the rocky peaks of Beech, Sugar and Grandfather Mountains embrace the towns of Banner Elk, Boone, and Blowing Rock. We are cool in the hot summer months and we are really cold in the winter. That means we have great year-round activities waiting for you: swimming, boating, rock-climbing, zip-lines, hiking and camping in the summer; and skiing, ice skating, and snow tubing in the winter. Autumn colors are beautiful in the High Country which hosts entertaining events and festivals.  We invite all people regardless of their faith or denomination to come and stay with us.
