Our Camp’s History

Falling Creek Camp was founded in 1969 by Jim Miller (director of Camp Greystone) as an independent Christian camp for boys and the brother camp of Camp Greystone.

Jim purchased the land in 1968, and opened for the first season the following summer with 110 boys for one 7-week session. During the ensuing years, Falling Creek grew in enrollment and new session options were added.

In the fall of 1989, Falling Creek was purchased by Chuck and Jean McGrady. Chuck and co-director Donnie Bain successfully operated Camp for 16 years.

In 2005, Yates Pharr, a 12 year FCC camper and counselor, and his wife Marisa purchased Camp. After a successful career in commercial real estate, this is a dream come true for Yates and Marisa to return to Falling Creek with their three daughters.

Chuck McGrady remains active at camp as Director Emeritus.

Time Honored Tradition

Summer camp gives a boy the opportunity to learn from the good example set by mature, thoughtful, carefully chosen summer camp counselors.

“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity.” Psalms 133:1

For over four decades, this verse has been recited to open each Sunday night campfire. Longstanding traditions and a commitment to character development are hallmarks of the Falling Creek program.
