The Bold New City Of The South

Raymur and Philip Rachels hosted a large group at their beautiful home in Jacksonville, FL. It was an excellent mix of returning Falling Creek families and those that came to learn more about camp.

Dads who have joined their sons at FCC for Father/Son Weekend jumped into the group shot tonight.  Chris Garbo (back left), from Naples, FL, took time out of his busy schedule at the University of Florida to come say hello and support.  Chris has been a camper, CIT, and now counselor at Falling Creek for seven summers. Dads who have joined their sons at FCC for Father/Son Weekend jumped into the group shot tonight.

Many thanks to Ford R, Noah G, and many other veteran campers for helping Yates answer questions.

To The Triad!

Yates made his way east to Winston-Salem, NC Wednesday evening where Rob and Elizabeth Wall hosted the Falling Creek Camp movies and reunion for the families in the W-S, Greensboro, and High Point area.

We were thrilled to gather current campers and boys who came to learn more about Falling Creek Camp. Dads who went to camp when they were younger and/or  participated in Father/Son Weekend joined with several FCC staff in this great group photo.We were thrilled to gather current campers and boys who came to learn more about Falling Creek Camp.

FCC activities are awesome, but the staff is what makes the camp experience the best.  (l to r) Yates, Andrew Josupait, Mickey Herman, Hayden Vick, and Dougie Burns. Andrew is a Junior at UNC-Charlotte, Mickey is in his 2nd year of law school at Wake Forest, Hayden is a Junior at UNC- Chapel Hill, and Dougie is a Sophomore at UNC- Greensboro.  Thnaks guys for taking time out of your busy schedule to come to the event!FCC activities are awesome, but the staff is what makes the camp experience the best.

Rob is enjoying the fact that his sons are getting to experience the same Falling Creek Camp summer that he did.  In fact Rob was in Yates' Cabin in 1987.Andrew, Rob Wall, Hayden, and Dougie standing with Rob and Elizabeths sons, Haywood and Rustin.

Boys who are returning to Falling Creek paused momentarily to take their photo with some of the boys who came tonight to learn more about FCC.

It was a perfect night in a beautiful outside setting.  It was a perfect night in a beautiful outside setting.
The veteran campers took a photo with Yates and Sam Lyons and you could feel the excitement they had about coming back to camp.  Sam, a native of the Lexington area, took time out of his busy schedule to come by.  He was a Falling Creek camper, CIT, and counselor for 12 summers and had recently graduated from Asbury University.  He is now working full-time for a local technology business.

(l to r) Justin Schmidt, Calder Schmidt, Jordan Bennett, & Wardlaw Witherspoon. Justin was on the waterfront staff in 1989 with Marisa and Goody, and their son Calder has been an FCC camper for 8 summers.  Jordan will be returning for his 7th summer. Wardlaw was a camper when Yates and Goody were campers and counselors and I know he was thrilled to be here tonight to introduce FCC to his son.(l to r) Justin Schmidt, Calder Schmidt, Jordan Bennett, & Wardlaw Witherspoon.
