Meet the 2018 Camp Director of Howard H. Cherry Scout Reservation 

The Hawkeye Area Council is proud to announce that Meg Cunningham as the 2018 Camp Director at Howard H. Cherry Scout Reservation. 

Meg Cunningham has been involved in scouting for the past seven years. What started out as a 'summer lifeguarding job' turned into quite the adventure. While spending her summers working at camp, she traveled from New Hampshire, Vermont, Colorado, New York and Kentucky to work as a part of camp staff each summer. Meg has served as Aquatics Director, Camp Commissioner and COPE/Climbing director. Outside of camp staff Meg has been inducted into the OA and received her Brotherhood. In her spare time she works as a 6th grade Special Education teacher at The Boone Middle School in Boone Iowa. What Meg loves most about camp is it's ability to bring people together, and the family is forms. She is excited about the position of Camp Director because of the many people she knows and loves who are committed to helping her create and run the best program for the scouts at Howard H Cherry Scout Reservation.
