Welcome to YMCA Camp Cherokee! This is YOUR camp. Get ready for the absolute best summer of your life. Whether you love sports, adventure, dancing, cheerleading, music, fishing or just being in the great outdoors, WE are the camp for YOU!

YMCA Camp Cherokee is the Upper Palmetto YMCA’s Resident Camp. Established in 1945, Camp Cherokee is for boys and girls ages 6 to 15 and is located in beautiful Kings Mountain State Park. Our goal continues to be helping everyone reach their potential by building self-esteem, friendships and character in a safe environment.

Campers enjoy a wide variety of traditional and 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.
