John Knox Center


Located on the shores of Watts Bar Lake, John Knox Center provides a unique and natural setting for people to get away from the stress of everyday life and experience a time of Sabbath.  Surrounded by God's creation, children and adults have abundant opportunities to grow and learn.  Established in 1960, thousands consider camp their home away from home.

In addition to Camp John Knox, the summer camp program, you can rent Center facilities and food services for groups of all sizes to use for one-day, overnight, weekends, and extended activities throughout the year.

John Knox Center is also the home of the River Ridge Environmental Education Program. Established in 1994, River Ridge is a top education facility offering hands on programs for a variety of grade levels and sizes. For more information or to make reservations, please contact the Center office for details.
