Senior Adult Camp


Our Mountain Home

Participate in the fun and fellowship of a camping experienceCamp Cheerio, founded in 1960, is nestled high atop a mountain ridge near Roaring Gap, North Carolina, on 135 glorious acres of land. Stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains surround the camp, with tree-filled valleys below. The fresh air and abundant natural beauty at Cheerio provide an idyllic setting for a getaway. For over 25 years, Camp Cheerio, located just off Highway 21 in Roaring Gap, North Carolina, has served the senior population through its Senior Adult Camp program. Senior Adult Camp offers active adults, over age 55, a chance to participate in the fun and fellowship of a residential camp experience.

Camp Cheerio is committed to ensuring each person has an enjoyable, positive camping experience. Cheerio takes pride in the high caliber of people who work with Senior Adult Camp. Counselors assist in all aspects of camp operation from food service to leading activities.


A wide range of activities is offered during your stay at Camp Cheerio. Fishing, guided morning walks, canoeing, arts and crafts, ping-pong, archery, riflery, skeet shooting, card games, bingo, and tennis are some of the many activities you may participate in while at Cheerio. Once at camp, you will be given a copy of the schedule to be followed during your stay. You have the opportunity to participate in as many activities as you like.

Each night the entire camp celebrates a different theme. These may include: Ol' Time Barn Dance, Song 'n Skit Night, Carnival Night and Indoor Scavenger Hunt. Evening programs give campers a chance to have fun, relax, and become better acquainted with fellow participants.

Accommodationscampers enjoying senior adult camp (Check out our Facilities)

Cheerio has a modern, clean facility for you to enjoy while at Senior Adult Camp. Campers may request arrangements in one of two different facilities: Cabins (available all weekends) or Millis Lodge (available one weekend only). Towels, bedding and pillows are provided in all rooms and cabins. Both the Cabins and Millis Lodge have handicap accessible rooms available. Cabins are grouped together as either a duplex with two cabins occupying the same building and sharing a common foyer, or as a lodge with four cabins occupying the same building and sharing a large central sitting room. All cabins are fully heated with each having a private bathroom. Cabins are perfect for those traveling to Cheerio in a group, as each cabin sleeps two to eight campers. Millis Lodge, a 22-room facility, offers accommodations especially designed for couples. Campers desiring a Millis Lodge room or specific cabins are assigned rooms on a first-registered, first-served basis. Space is limited.
