With schools closed all around us due to COVID-19, lots of students and campers are at home working on e-learning and paper assignments. When you or your child need a break, take a moment to do one of our ‘Camp Cherokee Challenges or CCCs.’ We will be posting challenges on Facebook and Instagram and keeping a running list of submissions here. Email us pictures of your completed challenges or if you have any questions or ideas!
Day One: Nature Scavenger Hunt
Find a Gumball, Pinecone, and Flower.
Day Two: Find Your Own Luck
Find, draw, or make a four leaf clover.
Day Three: Flower Power
Find a flower and send us a picture. Let’s see how many different types of flowers we can post without repeats!
Day Four: Camouflage
There are four types of camouflage, one of the most popular is concealing coloration or an animal hiding itself against a background of the same color. Send us a picture of animals (or yourself) camouflaged against a background!
Day Five: Picnic
Have a Picnic! Inside or outside, do something to make your next meal or snack special and send us a photo!
Day Six: Camp Costume
What’s your camp ready costume? Jungle boogie, Luau, Monster Mash, Under the Sea; there are so many theme possibilities. Dress up in your craziest camp costume and send us a picture!
Day Seven: Rock Stacking
Stacking or Balancing Rocks for trail markers, burial sites, or art has been around since the beginning of civilization. Today your challenge is to see how many rocks you can stack and then send us a picture!
*Remember to put the rocks back on the ground after you are done to make sure an animal does not lose its habitat.
Day Eight: Spell Your Name
Go outside and take pictures of things you find or make that look like letters of your name. This is a hard one, so if you only do your initials it is okay too! Don’t forget to tag us or send us your picture!

Wash the outside and detail clean the inside of your car. We washed the bus this week and it is looking great!
