Zeb Barnhardt Training Center

The Zeb Barnhardt Training Center, located at Raven Knob Scout Reservation, is the perfect retreat site for Scouters, church groups, and small companies. Just minutes off the Blue Ridge Parkway and 15 minutes from Mount Airy, it is easily accessible, yet hidden away in the mountains.

It has a fully equipped kitchen including microwave and free-standing ice-maker, a washer and dryer, large screen television and VCR, large stone fireplace in the meeting room and separate restroom and shower facilities for men and women.

The center is available for year-round use on a reservation basis.
