Traditional Summer Camp

Backpacking trips into the mountains. Sleeping under the stars. Kayaking. Sailing. Tennis. Rock climbing. Building friendships that last a lifetime.

A camp experience is something you can’t get anywhere else. It allows you to not just build skills like paddling and tennis, but you build life skills–how to get along with others and to be independent and make decisions for yourself, that you never would have a chance to do at home or in a classroom setting.” -Yates Pharr (Director)

Since 1969, Falling Creek has attracted campers from almost every state and numerous countries. Campers return year after year, and many become staff members. Falling Creek is an experience a boy carries from camp throughout his life.Since 1969, Falling Creek has attracted campers from almost every state and numerous countries.

Meet Your New Best Friends

Every camper lives in a cabin group with eight other boys and one or two counselors. Falling Creek believes that having boys from different parts of the world living together in community fosters social maturity. Cabin groups also go on overnight camping trip together each session.

We try not to take ourselves too seriously at camp...as you can tell. Cabin photos are a great time. Guess which photo we send home to Mom and Dad.We try not to take ourselves too seriously at camp...as you can tell. Cabin photos are a great time. Guess which photo we send home to Mom and Dad.

A dedicated and enthusiastic staff is the heart of the cabin, truly they are the heart of our camp. Falling Creek counselors are carefully selected and come from all over the United States and several countries. Each counselor is at least 19 years old and has completed at least one year of college. The average age of our counselors is 22, and more than half return each summer.
