Welcome to John Knox Center, located on the shores of Watts Bar Lake in beautiful east Tennessee. We offer organized retreats and events, custom programs, and lodging and program opportunities for adults, youth, children, church groups, schools, and more.
We also offer a broad variety of Christ centered children's and youth opportunities at our summer camp program called Camp John Knox. Campers grow as Christians, develop social and communications skills, and build strong relationships that can last a lifetime.
John Knox Center is also the home of the River Ridge Environmental Education Program. Established in 1994, River Ridge is a top education program offering hands on programs for a variety of grade levels and sizes. Day or overnight programs are available that incorporate hands-on and experiential learning.
John Knox Center is a refuge in the heart of the
Presbytery of East Tennessee set apart to nurture, renew,
and inspire a love for God and commitment to Christ.
