Father/Son Weekend

Traditional Father/Son Weekend Camp. Perfect for fathers with sons in grades K – 10. Partnering with families to help boys develop into strong, healthy men is the mission of Falling Creek. A critical part of this journey is the relationship a son has with his father.

The program is designed to promote the special relationship between a father and son through challenging, adventurous new activities, and the shared memories that are sure to last a lifetime.


Imagine you and your son spending an action-filled weekend in the mountains of Western North Carolina! Do you like to climb? What about canoeing? Shooting a rifle? Have you ever tried a zipline? Do you like to relax and go fishing, or play ping-pong and foosball?

These are just some of the activities that you will participate in at Falling Creek’s annual Father/Son Weekend Camps. There is NO experience required for any of the activities.

The weekend camp is all-inclusive. Meals are served ‘family style’ in our dining hall. Accommodations are provided in our rustic cabins. Each cabin has electricity and a bathroom. You will be grouped with other families with similarly aged boys, or you may request to be in a cabin with another family you already know.

This was my first experience with Falling Creek and it was a path-changing experience. It is rare for me to have designated time to solely focus on being a good father. This weekend allowed me to see life through the eyes of a six year old boy who only wants to have fun, learn about life, and spend time with his dad. It re-centered me. I will strive to always be a good father and remember that I have a boy looking at me for instructions on how to grow into a good man." Edward Miller from Houston, TX (Parent)

Demands of work and school and all the activities that accompany both often hinder the nurturing of all kinds of relationships.  This was a great weekend to get me refocused on what’s really important!” – Neal Sumter III from Atlanta, Georgia (Parent)
