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.
We are excited about this property and the impact that can be made on future generations.
TRO 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.
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 Thomas Road Outpost, we now are reaching thousands of children each year through a Christ-centered camping experience in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. We have spent the last number of years transforming this property into a state-of-the-art youth camp, aimed towards Middle School and High School students, and even adults, with the ability to offer the many churches, schools, and organizations in the area a retreat space unlike any other in Central Virginia.
We are excited for the future at TRO, and look forward to the many years of impact this property will have on the youth and adults alike who attend.
