Camps for boys and girls both along the coast and in the mountains outnumbered those in any other state. As reported in 1942, more than a million dollars was spent on camping within the state. One such camp was Camp Sequoyah located 16 miles from Asheville. This boys' camp covered 125 acres, had 42 buildings, and included athletic fields, a private lake, tennis courts, outdoor theater space, and riding field. Camp goers could engage in typical activities including nature and art lessons, carpentry, boating, etc.
