Camp Sequoyah, Greater Alabama Council

A WEEK AT SUMMER CAMP is full of twists and turns. Especially when you’re whooshing down the resort-quality waterslide at Camp Sequoyah, a 1,447-acre water wonderland nestled in the Talladega National Forest, roughly halfway between Birmingham, Ala., and Atlanta.

The fun starts at Lake Cross, the skinny, 80-acre lake that’s home to boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, lakeside climbing, and the camp’s newest toy: the Sequoyah Sidewinder, a high-speed waterslide that takes Scouts on a wild ride.

Think that’s all? Hardly. There’s a reason they call this place the Land of a Thousand Dreams.

Here’s what else awaits summer campers:

A muddy obstacle course where campers bring “clothes they never want to wear again.”

Conservation projects, shooting sports, boating, merit badges, and a day hike to Alabama’s highest point, Mount Cheaha.

A golf tournament just for adults where leaders compete with clubs and balls constructed from natural materials found at camp.

  1. Do you attend this camp as a troop, or can an individual scout attend? Do you have a schedule and price list that could be e-mailed to this address? and any camp info. Thank you, Barbara Turner

    • A Scout should be able to attend as an individual. He would be placed with a troop who would provide leadership and supervision during his stay. You can visit http://www.1bsa.org to find more information on council camps in the Greater Alabama Council. Comer Scout Reservation in Mentone, AL, has a similar waterslide and sits in a beautiful mountain area near DeSoto State Park and DeSoto Falls.

  2. Camp Sequoyah, is part of Greater Alabam Council, we have a website, 1bsa.org, there is a link to our camp there with a leaders guide for summer camp. thank you

  3. Not to slight this, or any other camp, S bar F, near Saint Louis, Missouri (actually located in Knob Lick, Missouri, and part of the Greater Saint Louis Area Council), also featured in Scouting Magazine’s Cool Camps – for its tree houses, also has a water park featuring two water slides – a straight, drop, speed slide, and a twisty, curvy slide, as well as “Rustic” attractions, including a zip-line, rope swing, carousel, monkey bars, rings, and more!
