What started out as a dream long ago, became a reality. Founded in 2008, Bill and Angie Shugart set out on a mission to provide a quality summer camp for local youth. The grassroots organization steadily grew into environmental education outreach into local schools and outdoor excursions for visitors. It is now, a thriving program with great partners and supporters that have helped bring  us full circle into a successful community based organization.





"We adored our guide for rock rappelling! So much fun and I felt very safe. We can not wait to do it again!"
SC Miranda

"When we showed up to Cherokee Rock Village for our family rock climbing excursion, it became apparent immediately that we had made a great choice with this company. Bill shared so much knowledge, appreciation for the land and patience with us. We would not hesitate to recommend this company to friends, families and anyone who asks. Thanks for the experience of a lifetime that we have memories and photos to share for years to come."The Bryan Family
