Green & Gold Gaffe

2008 Green & Gold Book

2008 Green & Gold Book

We recently mailed Green & Gold Books to all campers and staff members from the summer. We hope you enjoy reconnecting with your camp friends. The book contains recognitions for the summer as well as the names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and cabins for everyone who attended camp in 2008.

Several of the books, however, contain blank pages that we were unaware of.

If your Green & Gold has any blank pages, please contact camp and we can send you a new one.

Movies and Memories

Jacksonville Alumni at Camp Movie Show


Yates is on the road this month showing the camp movie. Last week he visited Augusta, Jacksonville, Nashville, and Columbia. The shows were well attended by Falling Creek alumni and families interested in camp.

Thanks to the Glover Family for hosting the Jacksonville show. We were happy to see Emi Arnold in Jacksonville. Emi is a Falling Creek staff member who plans to return for her third summer in Arts & Crafts.

Nashville Alumni at Camp Movie Show


We thank the Cheek family for hosting the Nashville show. Molly Knight, a swim staff member in the mid 90’s and 2000’s came to Nashville to see everyone, as well as Autumne Lowe, who plans to return for her third year on the horseback riding staff. Will Weaver, a Falling Creek alumnus, also attended with his son who is a returning camper.

Awesome Attendance in Atlanta

Camp Movie Show Atlanta

Atlanta’s movie showing last Sunday was a huge hit. There were over 100 people in attendance, and was the largest showing yet. Many FCC alumni were a part of the group, and they talked about camp and caught up with camp friends.

The Milling family hosted the show in their home and we appreciate their willingness to host the movies and get everything organized.

For information about future movie shows and to see when Yates will be in your city, please visit our Travel Calendar.
