Who's ready to RAMPAGE? 

The RAMPAGE!!! program is the ultimate high adventure opportunity for Scouts that attend Camp Raven Knob. At our outpost facility in Independence, Virginia (located on the New River) Scouts will have an challenging week ahead of them full of thrill and adventure. Scouts will go whitewater canoeing down the New River, climbing at the famous Pilot Mountain, and overnight backpacking on the Appalachian Trail in Grayson Highlands State Park. You can even try out river boarding! (picture a boogie board going down a river...)

In addition to the busy week of adventures, Scouts will return to camp before Wednesday evening so that they can join their unit for Visitors Night, supper, and the Wednesday night campfire and OA Ceremony. Afterwards, Scouts will return back to the Rampage facility until Friday afternoon. For more information view the RAMPAGE Program Supplement below for all the details on what to bring.
