Green & Gold Yearbook and Fall Newsletter

Check your mailbox for the 2011 Green & Gold book! The envelope contains the book, a photo for each camper, and a copy of the latest camp newsletter.

This year’s Green & Gold is a yearbook, containing everyone’s individual photo. It is a great historical record of your amazing summer at Falling Creek. Look through it to find your photo, your friends, and your favorite counselors!

The 2011 booklet is dedicated to Jim Kurtts. He has been a counselor at Falling Creek for almost 40 summers. He continues to be a great resource to the Indian Lore program and a source of great stories.

The 2011 Fall Newsletter is packed full of interesting camp news. The Yates’ Yak highlights an American Camp Association study’s findings that a summer camping experience leads to youth development and growth.

If you want to look back on some of the original Green & Gold books, check out our archives. It is neat to see all of the tradition and history they contain.

First Day of Fall

Today is the official first day of Fall. Here and there, a few leaves are beginning to change on the trees.

Here is a beautiful photo of Falling Creek Falls flowing with quite a bit of water after the past few days of rain.

It will be three or four weeks before the colors of the season are on full display and we will definitely follow up with photos!
