Falling Creek has so many activities to choose from. What is unique about our activities versus other camps is how we allow our boys to make their own decisions, their own schedule, and allow for changes to this schedule each week. We also offer several off-campus trips each day so they can choose to stay at Falling Creek or enjoy a trip to a river, mountain, or lake.
Falling Creek provides boys with something called special sign-ups. Like mentioned above, staff will announce what special trips will be leaving camp that morning and the boys can sign-up for anything they are interested in trying. Special sign-ups are not in our junior session, and the trips may vary between the other sessions, but trips can range from a half-day up to 5 days!
Special sign-ups include backpacking/hiking, canoe camping, mountain biking, rock climbing, and whitewater paddling. These trips travel from the Pisgah National Forest, Dupont, Nantahala, and the Appalachian trial to Lake Fontana, and many rivers, like the Pigeon, Chattooga, Green River, and more!
In camp activities range from water-based activities, like fishing, sailing, and swimming, to sports like, archery, basketball, cross country, flag football, lacrosse, riflery, soccer, tennis, the HEAT, and ultimate frisbee!
We also offer unique, traditional activities. These activities include; arts & crafts, blacksmithing, horseback riding, Indian Lore, music, nature, pottery, theater, and woodworking.
With so many choices for the boys to choose from, Falling Creek is always full of adventure, learning, and experience. What else is so cool about participating in these activities is we have a progression system for each activity where boys can advance through 5 levels from scout to warrior. Boys can take an activity even further by aiming to master an activity instead of just participate.
