The Recreation Hall project at camp will not only provide a large indoor flex program space for campers and staff during overnight resident summer camp, but will also provide a state-of-the-art-facility for off-season programs such as retreats, weddings, and conferences as well as a new health center, staff offices, and living quarters for full-time staff. This new modern facility will provide space to accommodate our growing camp family, expanded areas for campers to gather around the fireplace, fellowship during a rainy day, and connect through songs, games, and camp traditions – both new and old.
Campers enjoy a wide variety of traditional adventure programs from swimming and hiking to Rambo and rock climbing. With campers from across the United States, Camp Cherokee helps campers to appreciate the diversity of other cultures and become a part of a global community. Cabin life also plays an important role in teaching campers to be self reliant, cooperate with others and learn to make decisions while they are away from home.
