Camp Cherokee needs your support to assure we continue our commitment of providing the camp experience to future generations.


Working at camp is the most amazing job you will ever have! Camp is where you get to serve others and change lives. In addition, you have the opportunity to experience all that Camp Cherokee has to offer! View our opportunities here.


There are many ways to tailor your Camp Cherokee YMCA giving experience to best fit your personal preferences. Our most important needs are camp operations, capital improvements and camper financial assistance.

An outright gift is just as its name implies: a gift donated immediately from you to Camp Cherokee. You can use your gift to benefit an unrestricted or restricted need at Camp Cherokee, or you can have your gift expended for immediate use. Also, please consider donating to our newly created YMCA endowment fund (The Heritage Club) where your gift is invested in perpetuity in support of generations to come.

Making a cash gift to Camp Cherokee is simple and easy. We accept personal checks, credit/debit transactions, cashiers checks or money orders. You can also make an online gift here:
