Registration & Enrollment Policies
Online registration for the 2017 Summer Season is open. If you are new to Falling Creek and would like more information or to schedule a tour of camp, please call the camp office at 828-692-0262. With long waiting lists certain, we encourage interested families to review our session options and submit an application as soon as possible.
The $1,000 deposit and Father/Son tuition is accepted via eCheck or Credit Card during the application process for each applied session or expedition. Checks also may be sent to camp. (If mailing a Check, your application will not be considered complete until we receive your deposit.)
If your camper is eligible to be enrolled, the deposit and Father/Son tuition will be processed upon enrollment. If your application is placed on a wait list, the deposit will not be processed until your camper is enrolled in a session.
The STEEL (CIT) session application begins a competitive selection process. Not all applicants will be offered spaces. A deposit will not be charged until the camper completes the process and is offered a space in STEEL. If he is not selected, a deposit will not be charged. Please see Camper Leadership Programs for information about STEEL.
Please see Expedition pages for Expedition enrollment policies.
Waiting List Policy
If we receive your application after we have reached capacity, you will be notified that your son has been placed on our waiting list and the deposit will not be processed until your camper is enrolled in a session.
If a cancellation of an enrolled camper is necessary for a camp session or expedition, payments, less a $200 cancellation fee, are refundable if written notice is received prior to December 1. The cancellation fee is 20% of the tuition for a cancellation received between December 1 and April 1. No refund will be made for cancellations after April 1.
Applications are accepted for a full term only. No refund will be made for late entrance or early withdrawal, except when caused by serious illness; in this case, the loss will be shared equally by the parent and the camp. The directors reserve the right to dismiss any camper who violates the camp rules or is judged disadvantageous to the general welfare of the camp. No refund will be made in case of dismissal.
For Father/Son Weekend cancellations more than 30-days before your weekend will be assessed a 20% cancellation fee. Father/Son cancellations less than 30-days before your weekend are non-refundable.
We all don’t know how you all do it! Every session, whether it is Main Camp or Father/Son Weekend, we go into it saying, how can the last visit be topped? And each year, you do it!” -Marianne Rogers from Naples, FL (Parent)
