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 5:30pm, 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 9:30pm. Visitors should plan to leave shortly after the conclusion of the campfire so that Scouts and leaders can get a good night's sleep! There are no facilities at Raven Knob for visitors to stay overnight.
Does the camp serve food Wednesday night?
Most units choose to eat/cook their own food on Wednesday nights, or have their visitors/families bring food into camp. Because of this, the dining hall is not open for supper on Wednesday nights. However, units who would like the camp to provide food for them can sign up in advance at leader's meetings. Camp staff will deliver a hot meal to your campsite at no additional cost. The camp can also provide visitors with food for a modest per-person fee (assessed to the troop account).
Can pizza be delivered to camp?
Yes, both Papa John's and Domino's will deliver to camp. However, they will likely have minimum orders so please call and check their policies about delivering to Raven Knob.
Can my unit have visitors at other times besides Wednesday night?
Visitors at any time other than Wednesday evening should make prior arrangements with the Camp Director. There are no facilities at Camp Raven Knob for visitors to stay overnight. Visitors are highly encouraged to only visit on Wednesday night to maintain a safe and orderly camp operation.
Can my unit reserve a program shelter for supper on Wednesday night?
Yes. At the leader's meetings on Sunday or Monday, Scoutmasters should contact the director of the area where their desired shelter is located to reserve it.
