Fathers, Sons, & Staff at Falling Creek Camp’s Father Son Weekend

Falling Creek’s second Father Son Weekend over the weekend of May 19-21 proved to be just as exciting as the first Father Son Weekend earlier in May. Another 80 father’s and sons enjoyed a weekend filled with activities ranging from mountain biking and the ropes course to a nature show and fishing. Besides the roller coaster and the high wire, George did a Blacksmithing demonstration for everyone during free time on Sunday. As one Dad put it in a post weekend email, “A BIG thanks to Falling Creek and its staff this past weekend! What a great trip our Augusta contingent had. The kids had a blast the entire time and fell asleep as soon as we headed home. They were worn out, along with a few dads I must confess!” Another Dad emailed that his son, “LOVED the father son weekend. Had a blast. And wants to come for years to come.”

Happy Fathers, Sons, & Staff at Falling Creek Camp

Falling Creek’s initial Father Son Weekend was a great success! Over 100 Fathers and Sons spent May 5-7 in the mountains of western North Carolina. They stayed in Cabins, ate in the Dining Hall, and participated in a wide range of activities.

Campers and their Dads were able to Canoe, Kayak, Climb on the Wall, make arrowheads at Blacksmithing, go Mountain Biking, see an Animal Show, play Ping-Pong and Foosball, Shoot Archery and Riflery, challenge themselves on the High Ropes Course, search for Salamanders in the creek, ride the Roller Coaster into the lake, listen to stories around the Campfire, and spend quality time together.

“What a fantastic weekend!!! I can’t thank you enough for the attention, enthusiasm, kindness, and instruction from the entire Falling Creek Camp staff. The entire weekend was very well organized and went off without a hitch. It was wonderful seeing the boys bond with each other and explore new things. We were all fearless as kids but fatherhood has a way of making you a little more conservative and I must admit that I was a bit concerned about the appropriateness of some of the activities for a five year old, particularly riflery.
