Carter Family

Johnathan, Yates, Philip, and Talbot


Talbot Carter, the head of the Paddling staff in the late 70’s at Falling Creek, visited camp on Christmas Day with two of his three sons, Jonathan and Philip. Chris was unable to make the trip with them.

Talbot’s wife Jan was also a staff member in the 70’s teaching water skiing at Lake Summit. All three Carter boys are alumni of FCC, making it a full family connection to Falling Creek.

Yates was thrilled to reconnect as Talbot taught Yates how to paddle in 1978 and 1979 at FCC. The Carters live close by in Greenville, SC.
