What are waypoints? In navigation they are a set of coordinates that represent a fixed location, or an objective along a planned course in one’s journey. Falling Creek developed the Waypoints tradition so campers and staff will have intentional objectives throughout their journey.

Progression is not age restrictive as the boys are able and encouraged to pursue advancement based on their interest. There are Waypoints for each individual’s unique course at Falling Creek. Currently, progression Waypoints can be earned in 27 activities, 4 expeditions, and 23 specialty awards. Achievements will be rewarded with Waypoint Markers at the end of each session that can proudly be displayed on a frame-worthy base map of Falling Creek’s campus.

New campers and staff will receive a map after their first summer. These Waypoints are highly sought after by campers and staff alike. We encourage the boys to challenge themselves to progress in the many activities offered at Falling Creek Camp.
