At Camp Raven Knob, Wednesday evening is Visitors' Night! Parents and other family members are encouraged to bring a picnic supper to enjoy with their Scout and friends. The highlight of the evening's activities is the campfire program and Order of the Arrow ceremony.
Vehicles are allowed into camp on Wednesday evenings. Visitors should not plan to arrive at Raven Knob before 7:00pm, as Scouts will be involved in sessions for most of the afternoon and will need time to take a shower and change clothes. The campfire begins at 8:15pm in the Order of the Arrow Arena, and lasts until approximately 9:15pm. Visitors should plan to leave shortly after the conclusion of the campfire so that Scouts and leaders can get a good night's sleep!

Please note that the road in front of the arena will be closed from 7:30 PM until the end of the campfire. If you need to leave before the end of the campfire please park on the aquatics side of the arena.
