Changing the World One Life at a Time
What began as a re-enactment site of the Civil War Battle of Chickamauga is now home of the fastest growing Christian campground in the region.  The old lodge today stands as Baker's General Store and is a favorite hangout of campers and sponsors alike during the summer season.
Our tabernacle underwent a major overhaul in 2011 with an all-new video projection system and stage area.  The worship space will seat 450 under the roof with plenty of space just outside for lawn chairs and benches.  We look at the tabernacle as a continual project, with future plans to enclose and climate-control the worship space.
Our new dining hall has a capacity of 280 and comes complete with a fully-loaded commercial kitchen, pantry, and dishwashing room.  Attached to the dining hall are two bedrooms with bunk beds and private baths that can be used for staff or cooks.
Cross Creek is one of the signature features of TBA.  One spring feeds the creek from the upper end (before it flows into the campground) and another spring feeds it just before it leaves the property near the old Sherrick home.  Cross Creek is one of the reasons Fuller Field (our smaller rec field) is such a popular place for recreation, team-building, and outdoor worship.
Our old paintball course has been transformed into an air rifle range in time for the 2014 camp season!
We use .177 caliber pellet guns for target practice in a wooded setting.
