Through outdoor adventures and wilderness experiences, the BOLD & GOLD program inspires courage and multi-cultural leadership in diverse groups of rising 9th-12th grade students. The challenge, glory, and beauty of the wilderness come together on our exciting adventures, which range from weekend clubs to 7 day expeditions.
Come run through the wonderful grounds of YMCA Camp Cherokee, a summer resident camp located in Kings Mountain State Park! This 5k trail/road race is a great chance to hit the trail and get a little road running in as well. All proceeds will go to send underprivileged kids to camp!
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.
Gain a bird's eye view of YMCA Camp Cherokee! This new 3 hour experience will take participants through 8 zip lines and two bridges high above the pristine beauty that is Camp Cherokee. This experience culminates with a 700 foot long zip line across portions of Lake York. You won't be disappointed.
