Dear Falling Creek Community:

Over the past 13 years, I have been very fortunate to be affiliated with Falling Creek Camp in numerous capacities. From 5 summers as an Iroquois Cabin Counselor, a Tribal Leader, and member/Activity Head of the Canoe/Kayak Staff to the past 8 years as a Program and Assistant Director, the experiences of camp have been life shaping and I will be forever indebted.

Beginning in October, I will be the new Assistant Director of Safety, Education, and Instruction for the American Canoe Association ( based out of Fredericksburg, VA. The primary aspect of my new job description will be to manage the ACA’s national instruction program for canoeing, kayaking, and river rescue. It also consists of working on numerous national projects, mostly funded by United States Coast Guard grants, which deal with all aspects of paddlesports safety and education. The new job also entails traveling across the country to present and teach at regional and national conferences and events.

The new opportunity that has been presented to my family and I is extremely exciting, yet it is always difficult to move from a place that means so much.

I would like to thank everyone associated with Falling Creek that has had a positive impact not only on me, but more importantly on all those campers who have driven up the camp driveway.

Again, thank you all for the opportunity to work at such a great place and alongside so many outstanding people.

All the best to you and to Falling Creek in the years to come.

Christopher Stec

“Marisa and I and the entire Falling Creek full-time staff wish Chris, Claudette and Andrew the very best in this wonderful new opportunity at the American Canoe Association. Chris’ contributions to camp and the roles he has served over the years at Falling Creek have positively influenced many campers and staff. The ACA has a strong new asset on their team and we are all excited for the Stec’s.”
