Help TLC Campground

TLC Campground (Home of Camp Idunna, Vanir Fest, Winternights, Winter Wassail, and Trillium) is in trouble!

Due to my cancer, we have lost 30% of my income and now have the addition of a number of medical bills to pay. We were barely scraping through to pay the mortgage before. Now there's no way we can pay it. We need help to keep the campground (and our home) during this time.


TLC Campground is a family-owned campground in the mountains of northwestern Virginia. We are primarily a retreat center, catering to groups that want close-knit family-style gatherings. We host a number of events each year: Trillium, Rhythm Fest, Vanir Fest, Camp Idunna, Winternights and Winter Wassail. We also host cookouts like our 4th of July celebration and our New Year's Eve bonfire/party.

TLC has been holding these types of events for 8 years and has built a community from the people who attend regularly.

In March, Su, one of the owners, was diagnosed with triple-negative stage IIb breast cancer, a very fast growing and aggressive type of breast cancer that can only be treated by chemotherapy. Having two young children (ages 5 and 2) made this even more daunting (especially since the youngest was still breastfeeding at the time of the diagnosis).

Su started chemotherapy a week after the diagnosis and has had to go on disability from work due to this diagnosis, cutting her income by 30%. As this was the family's primary source of income outside of the regular campground revenue and they were just barely scraping by before, this loss of income has been devastating.

The only way they have been able to keep from losing both the campground and their homes during this difficult time has been through the generous help from both family and friends.
