Traditional Summer Camp
Tradition, Reflection, Gratitude, Encouragement!
Backpacking trips into the mountains. Sleeping under the stars. Kayaking. Rock climbing. Sailing. Tennis. Building friendships that last a lifetime. Enjoying the feeling of belonging. Understanding what it’s like to be a part of a genuine team. This is Falling Creek Camp.
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, 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)
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 trips together each session.
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.
