A Christ-centered outdoor adventure located in the heart of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Parkway.
Thomas Road Baptist Church has been involved in camping programs for over fifty years. Our first facility, Treasure Island, was donated to us in the late 1960’s. Located on the James River, this facility housed over 400 young people each week.
During its tenure, Treasure Island hosted tens of thousands of young people from Virginia and saw thousands come to Christ. In 1985, a major flood destroyed Treasure Island, as well as the bridge that carried traffic to the island. It was never rebuilt, thus Treasure Island is still vacant today. In the late 1990’s, TRBC purchased another camp facility that was much smaller, called Camp Hydaway. This camp hosts 96 campers each week and still continues today.
An adventure that you will never forget
In March 2014, TRBC was given a 500-acre parcel of land in the midst of the Blue Ridge Parkway’s Peaks of Otter region. The current owner donated this land to TRBC to be repurposed as a youth camp with the emphasis of reaching at-risk youth from Virginia, North Carolina, West Virginia, Maryland and the DC area. We’ve named this camp Thomas Road Outpost.
We are excited about this property and the impact that can be made on future generations.
he TRO Summer Camp is all about pointing students to the Gospel. Offering nearly two-dozen recreation options, we are committed to high-impact recreation. More than that, we are committed to Gospel-centered discipleship. Our summer camps host daily worship services, engaging students through song, expositional preaching, drama, and video.
In addition, multiple daily breakout sessions cover a wide range of relevant topics, from apologetics and missions to relationships and Bible doctrine. Each day concludes with small group sessions, allowing our staff to engage students in personal relationships and encouraging youth groups to grow as a community.

Partner with Us
The TRO staff is a community of believers committed to equipping local churches through expositional teaching and Gospel-centered discipleship.
Each summer, we receive thousands of requests from throughout the region to attend our camp but are unable to house them due to the limited space and acreage at our current camp facility. It is heartbreaking to turn so many away.
Now with the potential at Thomas Road Outpost, we can return to the days of reaching thousands of children each year through a Christ-centered camping experience in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
Please consider partnering with us to impact the lives of at-risk youth with the love of Christ and the life-changing power of the Gospel.
