Atlanta Movies and Reunion

Atlanta Group 9-29-13

A large group of new families joined a equally big contingent of returning campers and their families at Jayne Ann and Clay Milling’s home for the Falling Creek Camp Movies and Reunion. The Milling’s son Will has been coming to FCC for 9 summers now, and he paddled on the HUCK Southeast Expedition this past summer after main camp.

There were also quite a number of fathers attending who were either FCC alumni or were FCC veterans who have attended a Father/Son Weekend. These dads joined us in our group photo above.

HUCK Ottawa is an 8-day whitewater expedition in Canada focusing on the river running and play boating aspects of whitewater kayaking. Utilizing the scenic Ottawa River, participants will improve their paddling skills while enjoying the beauty of Ontario, Canada. The Ottawa will offer many different varieties of rapids for the expedition members to put their paddling skills to the test in a big water environment which is much different than the typical southeastern runs! HUCK Ottawa will run from July 22nd – July 29th, 2014.

Falling Creek took 13 boys to the Ottawa River in 2011 for “HUCK Canada”. Check out a short film Jez put together giving you a good idea of the rapids in this awesome adventure.

Growing leadership skills and character values are a key part of the FCC Expeditions. You will notice that veteran FCC campers Alexander Thomas (10 summers), from Atlanta, GA and Andy Suleskey (9 summers), from Nokomis, FL, were both on this trip. These guys were both on the FCC staff this past summer, Andy on the paddling staff, and Alexander as a co-head of the mountain biking staff.
