The boys discussed the Falling Creek CODE and how the values it details are a strong base to the camp community at Falling Creek.  Yates shared a CODE poster and then one of the boys excitedly drew a raffle ticket that allowed him to take the poster home with him.The boys discussed the Falling Creek CODE and how the values it details are a strong base to the camp community at Falling Creek.

H-Town Is Huge!

Yates was thrilled to see so many families in Houston, TX tonight at Winifred and Carleton Riser’s lovely home. In fact, with the always crazy schedules that all these families carry, Yates connected with about 8 boys an hour earlier than he did with the larger group at the regular time.

Most all of the boys at the earlier gathering had a big soccer game. It was very nice of them all to get together and introduce Falling Creek to two of their friends who had that game as well.Most all of the boys at the earlier gathering had a big soccer game.

City Beautiful

Yates traveled down south to Coral Gables, FL this evening to reconnect with Falling Creek Campers at Allison and Bill Holly’s beautiful home. It was a great opportunity to tell those boys who came to learn more about camp why they enjoy their Falling Creek experience.

There was a great group of campers and boys who came tonight.  Fathers who were FCC campers years ago and those who attended Father/Son Weekend jumped into the photo as well.There was a great group of campers and boys who came tonight.
