There is a minimum charge of $50.00 for each range that is opened. This non-refundable fee can be applied to the range fees for the unit for the specified activity. This fee is due to the Old Hickory Council office at least 15 days prior to the activity. If the fee is not received in advance the activity will be cancelled.

Please have an accurate headcount of how many will be participating in order for the required number of certified staff to be scheduled.  If possible we will host more than one troop/crew each date so we can serve more youth. Reservations will be on a first come, first serve basis.

All shooting activities are supervised by National Rifle Association certified Range Safety Officers and Instructors. Archery activities are supervised by an USA Archery Level 1 Instructor or by a National Camp School Shooting Sports Director trained archery range master.

Each youth participating in shooting activities at Camp Raven Knob must have a signed Outdoor Program Parental Release form.
