The Spirit of Giving

Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. – Luke 6:38

Campers learning how to cook on a campfire.

One of the pillars of Servant’s Heart is to take the initiative to help others. Indeed, character traits like unselfishness, outward focus, and generosity have been modeled and taught to boys at Falling Creek ever since the camp began in 1969.

We as the alumni, parents, grandparents, staff and friends of Falling Creek have an exciting chance to live out that giving spirit by donating funds to any of three tax-deductible scholarships that directly benefit Falling Creek campers and staff members. Gifts may be made online or by mailing a check. Please contact the camp office for more information regarding stocks or securities gifts and any other questions. Here are the details on each…

As a former camper, I know how important and rewarding a summer camp experience can be for a young boy. The excellence of the program and staff allows Falling Creek to run one of the finest camps in the country. To the extent this opportunity can be extended to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity, all of us will benefit in the long run.” -Haynes Chidsey from Sarasota, FL (Alumnus)

It Only Takes A Spark Fund

This exciting grant program awards Falling Creek staff members who demonstrate a “Servant’s Heart,” the resources, and support to positively impact others beyond the summer months. Former FCC staffers have started ministries to help father and sons develop strong relationships based on hunting and Christian principles; provided much-needed school supplies to hundreds of impoverished children in rural South Carolina; and helped underprivileged families in Honduras to receive basic health care, construct homes, and strengthen their Christian faith.

The selection committee awards funding from $250 – $1,000 per project for various work around the world. The fund is set up through a partnership with The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina.
