What: Parent – Scout Weekend
When: October 25–27, 2019
Where: Raven Knob Scout Reservation
Action Needed: Register by Monday, Oct 7th
Please register to join us for Parent – Scout Weekend at Camp Raven Knob, it’s coming up fast and it’s going to be great! We need you to register by Monday, Oct 7th, so that we can get our campsite assigned.
Also, we do need to collect a little paperwork to start the year. You only need to do this once annually. Please complete, scan and email the following to Lee:
- BSA Health Form Parts A & B
- Parental Release Form
- Copy of your Insurance Card
- and email them to Lee Danhauer.
This special weekend is your chance to get to know or to visit your favorite stations at Camp Raven Knob. We eat our food in camp (because we are blessed with a Scout Master who is also a Master Chef) and on Saturday, there are activity stations set up all over Camp Raven Knob, from hiking to archery, from the fishing pond to the rifle range. There will almost certainly be some Jack Tales (folk stories around the campfire) and if someone distracts me long enough, we’ll probably eat s’mores.
Because Old Hickory Council charges us for each attendee and we buy a lot of food to support this trip, we need to charge $20 for each attendee (scout or parent). We will send you a PayPal invoice accordingly. If you prefer to pay by another method, please just let us know.
Dates and Times
We arrive at Raven Knob late on Friday afternoon, and Camporee ends on Sunday morning. Because Raven Knob is close by, some families opt to spend just Friday night, or just Saturday night, or even to come for the day on Saturday.
Need camping equipment?
We’ll send out equipment and packings lists closer to the date of the trip.
If you’re not yet equipped for camping, let Lee Danhauer know on the registration form and we’ll figure out what you need. We can cover almost anything you might need for this first trip, and that will give you a chance to test it out and determine your needs for the future.
Remember, we don’t ever want resources or equipment to stand in the way of one of our Scouts having a great experience with nature, their friends, and their parents. Let Sean or Lee know if equipment or money is an issue.
