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 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.
