Here's what they are saying...
It was such a great summer, 2013 is already filling up quickly. As of September 1st, the first four weeks are almost completely full! Here are some of the comments from our leaders:
“This year I asked the guys if they wanted to go elsewhere and the whole troop said Cherokee and no other!” “I cannot imagine that any (other camp) could be better than what we have here!” “Our adult leaders have many years of Scouting experience and we compliment you on a very well run program! Thank you!!” “Awesome camp! Love the people!” “This camp far exceeded my expectations in every area.” “Food was very good!”
New high adventure program for older Scouts and Venturers who are tired of working on merit badges. CSR X is a new program offered at Cherokee Scout Reservation for older Scouts to experience camp in a different way. Scouts 14 years old and up will be taken away from camp and participate in more extreme and exciting events that will push them as Scouts and find excitement in a realm outside of merit badge courses. Excursions that Scouts could participate in are whitewater rafting, horseback riding, zip-lining, mountain climbing, shooting sports, mountain biking and many other activities specifically designed for older Scouts.
The Nova Awards program is Scouting’s newest and most exciting adventure. With an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, Boy Scouts and Venturers can explore the wonders of different STEM fields as they work toward the Nova or Supernova awards.
Advanced Archery Shoot
As part of our new older Scout high adventure programs, a new advanced archery shoot will be introduced that will include a trail shooting experience at 3-D animal targets and action targets in a simulated hunt.
Merit Badges Farm Mechanics and Traffic Safety merit badges have been added and combined with Automotive Maintenance merit badge to create the Transportation program. Soil and Water Conservation merit badge has been brought back and combined with Geology merit badge for a new two hour session. Oceanography merit badge has returned to the program to provide more opportunities for Scouts to earn STEM-related merit badges. Energy merit badge has been added to the program to provide more opportunities for Scouts to earn STEM-related merit badges. Citizenship in the World merit badge has been added to the program to allow Scouts to broaden their horizons with the help of our International Scout staff member.
