Camp Davy Crockett is nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Northeast Tennessee. Its pristine wilderness and strong camping traditions make it a fantastic place to attend camp.
Camp Davy Crockett is 1865 acres with 9 miles of shoreline on Cherokee Lake. Camp Davy Crockett will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2022. We are excited to continue the traditions and to be a place where we build tomorrow’s leaders.
”I liked the fact that you encouraged questions. I also really liked the fact that you stated up front that the instructor is the only one that should be giving directions at the range. I do believe for those that brought their own handgun, they should have a little more knowledge about their guns before offering to others to shoot them. Great job and would love to learn more from you, maybe a part two with more range time.
