Health and Recreation

“Play is the highest form of research.”

– Albert Einstein

Boys are built for action and they stay on the move at Cherokee Creek Boys Boarding School! We take full advantage of the offerings in our region using the mountains, lakes, rivers and local community as our playground!

The Health and Recreational activities at our boys boarding school include:

Team Sports

Soccer, basketball, lacrosse, softball, flag football, cross country, track and golf… new activities are added as boys indicate an interest


Outdoor Recreation

Swimming, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, volleyball, rock climbing, ropes courses, fishing

Treks Program

Each weekend a team of boys pack up their camping gear and head into the great outdoors to challenge themselves against “the mighty forces of nature”. The boys love getting off campus to camp and participate in any of the outdoor recreation listed above.

Weekend Recreation

With classes out until Monday, boys enjoy weekends filled with activities like fishing on the river, attending cultural events, going to the movies, bowling, geo caching, playing at the local parks, arts & crafts, watching sporting events on TV, swimming in the river and more.

Daily Free Play

The concept of “recess” has disappeared from most schools. We have time for free play each day for boys to shoot hoops, play capture the flag, explore the creek or hang out on the front porch. We all need down time and time to move!
