A North Carolina Summer Camp

Falling Creek’s 545 acre campus is set in a secluded mountaintop cove in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Surrounded by hundreds of acres of privately owned forest and beautiful wilderness (placed in a conservation easement to protect rare plants and animals such as the endangered green salamander and pitcher plant), with close proximity to DuPont State Forest, Pisgah National Forest, and other wilderness areas, Western North Carolina offers an ideal setting for our traditional summer camp.

We enjoy warm, sunny days most of the summer. Rain is sporadic, with showers passing through quickly. The Green River cools our area, plus there's plentiful shade, so the temperature seldom goes over 80º. The nights are pleasantly cool with a fresh breeze blowing through the mountains.We enjoy warm, sunny days most of the summer. Rain is sporadic, with showers passing through quickly.

We have two spring-fed lakes with diving boards, a blob, zip line, our very own roller coaster, and canoe and kayak docks; one mile of private Blue Ribbon trout fishing on the Green River; many acres of pastures for our herd of camp owned horses, two riding rings, and a 24 stall horse barn; 15 miles of professionally built single-track trails for mountain biking, riding, running and hiking; and much more. We also have a dock on nearby Lake Summit for our sailing program.

Camp Facilities

Falling Creek is an educational institution. It’s a different kind of education than boys get during the rest of the year. It’s learning self-confidence, how to live with a group, and how to see opportunities for growth and pursue them.” -Donnie Bain (Former FCC Director)

A Window Into Camp: Backpacking—An Opportunity to Think

North Carolina is an excellent place to go backpacking! But, beyond the obvious fun, why is this activity important to us at Falling Creek? Boys need time away—from technology, from competition, from the fast paced life that has become “normal.” So, when was the last time your son had time to think?
