Welcome To Camp Cherokee


Welcome to Camp Cherokee, the Upper Palmetto YMCA’s Resident Camp. Established in 1945, Camp Cherokee is for boys and girls ages 6 to 14. We are located in Kings Mountain State Park in Blacksburg, South Carolina. Nestled in the 7,000+ acre state and national parks, Camp Cherokee boasts beautiful forests and a 66 acre private lake. Our goal continues to be helping everyone reach their potential by building self-esteem, friendships and character in a safe environment.

We Are Proud to Reach So Many

“Today I dropped off my children, Spencer and Henry for their first week at Camp Cherokee. I hope they come home with as many wonderful memories as I have from my years there. I want to thank Amy Counterman and Caitlyn Proco for coming in for me at the last minute and making sure Spencer and Henry were able to both attend second session. This is a special place filled with special people. I’m so glad they are finally getting to experience it.”
