Imagine you and your dad 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 will participate in at Falling Creek’s annual Father/Son Weekends.

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

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, GA (Parent)
