Camp Cherokee 2021
The Return of Camp Cherokee
By: James L. Kilgore
August 3rd, 4th & 5th, 2021– Welcome back to Camp Cherokee…On the 1st day of summer camp it was a sunny day and time for music, they make good songs that will last forever. Also, we have story time from PJ the storyteller and he talks to everybody about God. Next, the staff pour some ice onto foil, we color the ice. Finally, you let the t-shirt dry overnight. Joey catches the most fish during camp. In order to get on the tube you have to guess on coin toss and this reporter chose tails and it was. So, I finally went on the tube first.
Did you know that a speedboat travels the Ocoee River at eighty-five to ninety miles per hour?
It took me about two to three minutes. Wherever you go on boat rides, tubing or swimming you have to wear a personal flotation device.
