About Falling Creek Camp

Camp's Mission

A member of the riding staff speaks with a camper on his horse.

Falling Creek’s mission is to provide a setting, a program, and dedicated leadership to allow our boys a maximum opportunity for personal growth and fun as they develop an understanding of their relationships with nature, their fellow man,
and God.

Camp Location

Our summer camp is located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Western North Carolina near the town of Tuxedo. Falling Creek is a short 45-minute drive from both Asheville (AVL), North Carolina, and Greenville (GSP), South Carolina.

We have 36 cabins for campers. Each has electricity and a private bathroom with shower. The cabins are open-air. Falling Creek welcomes 288 campers each session and 240 campers in Junior Camp.
