Yates traveled down south to Coral Gables, FL this evening to reconnect with Falling Creek Campers at Allison and Bill Holly’s beautiful home. It was a great opportunity to tell those boys who came to learn more about camp why they enjoy their Falling Creek experience.

There was a great group of campers and boys who came tonight.  Fathers who were FCC campers years ago and those who attended Father/Son Weekend jumped into the photo as well.There was a great group of campers and boys who came tonight.

Andrew is from south Georgia, but now works as a nurse practitioner in Greenville.  Andrew has been on staff at FCC since 2009, most recently serving as a leader/instructor on the HUCK Expeditions and also on the medical team at times.

Our Nation's Capital

Yates made his way north to Alexandria, VA where Jane and Jason Spence hosted the Washington, DC area Falling Creek Camp Movies and Reunion at their wonderful home. Their sons, Campbell and Parker, were a tremendous help to Yates tonight.

The boys and dads who have attended Father/Son Weekends joined with FCC alumni for a fantastic group photo. David Ritchey, 7th from left in the back row, was a camper in Yates' cabin at FCC in the late 80's and is now thrilled to be sharing his Falling Creek experience with both of his sons.
