We are thrilled that you are considering spending an exciting and memorable week with us at beautiful Camp Sequoyah. Located within the Talladega National Forest in the Shadow of Mt. Cheaha, the highest point in Alabama, Summer Camp at Camp Sequoyah is truly a “Land of a Thousand Dreams”!
Steeped in Scouting Spirit and the beauty of Northeast Alabama, our summer camp offers a program unlike any other! Using the Patrol Method as your guide, your experience will be youth-led and exciting! Below you will find information about our camp program and property. We encourage you to take a deep dive into our Leaders Guide which outlines in detail the programs, awards, afternoon troop activities, and evening fun that you’ll have this summer!
Camp Sequoyah is all about having FUN and using the Patrol Method. Senior Patrol Leader’s (SPL) will lead and guide their fellow Scouts to ensure they have an amazing time at camp. When you arrive at camp, the SPL’s first task is to plan out and schedule your troop’s afternoon activities! Your troop will do 3 activities together every afternoon! Create your schedule based on what you and your fellow Scouts want to do!
From 8am to 12pm, Scouts will work on merit badges. There are 4 merit badge sessions each morning. Scoutmasters will register their Scouts for classes through our online Tentaroo System
From 2pm to 5pm, Scouts will participate in Troop/Patrol Activities! There are 3 activity sessions each afternoon. This is one of the highlights of camp and makes Camp Sequoyah AWESOME! Troops/Patrols will select 3 activities to do each afternoon. View the Afternoon Activities below!
From 6:45pm to 9pm, Scouts will participate in Evening Events! Adventure Valley Mud Run! Are you tougher than a Staffer Tent set up race! Vespers! Night Canoeing! Honor Trail! Triathlon! Campfires! And more!
Earn the Swimming and First Aid Merit Badges in our unique Trail to First Class Program! Scouts will also complete the rank requirements that tend to be more difficult for the troop to complete on their own. Participants will earn a special patch to commemorate their experience!
Mountaineering is our high adventure program for Scouts 14+ who are looking for an exciting outdoor experience while at camp. The program runs during the morning with Scouts planning out their week of daily adventures from White Water, Swimming, Sailing, War Canoe, Hiking Mt. Cheaha, Shooting Sports and more!
