Camp Activities & Progressions

Falling Creek offers 28 activities, from in-camp to out-of-camp activities, and numerous special signup activities. They range from a 50-minute period, to 3-and 4-day adventures!

Activity Progression

Falling Creek’s camp-wide progression system gives campers the opportunity to build confidence as they advance through five levels in each activity.

Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5
Scout Explorer Challenger Ranger Warrior

Each level has a set of criteria a camper must complete in order to advance. (Similar to the Boy Scout merit badge program.) The levels are skill-based, with leadership and service components.

Activity counselors chart campers’ progress. Some levels are achieved in a few days, while others may take several summers to complete. Campers who reach Ranger and Warrior are recognized on the Hall of Fame board on the side porch of the Dining Hall.Activity counselors chart campers’ progress.

We suggest you look over the daily activities with your son to make him aware of the choices. Your son will work with program directors, activity leaders, and counselors to create a customized activity schedule on opening day. Campers have an opportunity to adjust their schedules each week. Outdoor adventure trips listed below are offered as options during the week.
