50th Anniversary Alumni Weekend

September 7th-9th, 2018

Next fall, we’ll be throwing a 50th Anniversary Alumni Weekend and we’d love for you to attend. It will be an opportunity for past campers and former staff to join together and share memories, gratitude and encouragement.

Pack your trunk... you'll want to be at our camp alumni reunion when the bell rings!

Falling Creek alumni 25 years of age and older are invited to return to camp, reunite with old friends, and remember special times. Morning Watch, great meals in the dining hall, Morning Assembly, participating in your favorite camp activities, and campfire will be a few highlights.

The 50th Anniversary Alumni Weekend tuition is $195.00. The weekend is all-inclusive. Meals are served family style in our dining hall, just like you remember. Accommodations are provided in our rustic cabins. Each cabin has electricity and a bathroom. The weekend starts with check-in Friday afternoon and concludes Sunday late morning. You may even request to be in a cabin with someone you already know.

The weekend will include camp classics such as morning watch, morning assembly, campfire, camp meals and announcements, camp characters & activities, and a chance to reconnect, all at your choice.  We will also be unveiling a historical celebration video and beautiful coffee table book commemorating our rich tradition.

This event is not set up for spouses or family. It is intended to be an opportunity to return to camp for alumni. There is lodging and a lot to do locally, if family would like to stay in the area while you are at camp (our Parents page has a list of local lodging and things to do). We recommend they book soon, however, because the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, NC, is taking place around the same time, so area lodging will fill quickly.

As you are thinking about travel arrangements, plan to arrive between 4:00-6:00pm on Friday, Sept. 7th, and to depart on Sunday, Sept. 9th in the late morning, about 10:00am-11:00am. If you are flying, the best airports are either Asheville, NC (AVL) about 45 minutes away, or Greenville-Spartanburg, SC (GSP) about 1 hour away. Charlotte, NC (CLT) is also an option with a bit of a longer drive to camp at about 2 hours away.

After you register, reconnect with others who plan to attend on the Falling Creek Camp Alumni Association Facebook page.

It’s rare to find a place that remains anywhere near as good as the memories one carries of it. But from the hours spent at camp while dropping my son off, I got the distinct impression that Falling Creek has not just kept pace with my memory, but gotten better!” -Hawes Spencer from Charlottesville, VA (Parent & Alumnus)
