What should I pack for camp?
What Age Groups can come to TRO?
During the Summer, our focus is aimed at Middle School and High School students! During the retreat season through the fall and spring, our focus shifts to all ages! You can bring up your family, your youth group, college students, sports team, or book for a corporate outing!
How do I get to TRO?
Due to the nature of the mountainous region TRO calls home, we must take certain precautions when campers are traveling to TRO. If you are planning on coming to TRO, be sure to communicate this with TRO Directors or Staff. The TRO gate will remain locked at all other times.
When groups are coming to camp, cars will be parked in the Peaks of Otter Satellite/Bus Parking Lot. (85554 Blue Ridge Pkwy, Bedford, VA 24523) Note: This is not the parking lot in front of the restaurant, but rather in front of the accommodations.
Please see Camp Prep Guide for more info.
What does a day at camp look like?
This summer, you will arrive on a Monday morning to get moved in, and after having lunch, we’ll launch our Summer Programming. You will have your skills (and bravery) tested on our Ropes Course, explore the mountains on our Ranger Tours, and much more! Each evening will include a session, where we’ll have a time to reflect, worship, and learn more about our Creator…all while having an absolute blast together! Camp will conclude on Friday morning.
