Activities at Falling Creek
These activity pages are meant to give you a general overview of each activity.
Falling Creek offers over 27 different activities, from in-camp to out-of-camp activities and numerous special signup activities.
Falling Creek’s camp-wide progression system gives campers an opportunity to build confidence as they advance through five levels in each activity.
Each level has a set of criteria a camper must complete in order to advance. (It’s similar to the Boy Scout merit badge program.) The levels are effort based and also have leadership and service components. The names assigned to each level are:
Activity counselors chart the campers’ progress. Some levels can be achieved in a few days, while some 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.
This is the list of activities you can choose to sign up for on your first day of camp. They are the activities you can do every day, periods 1-4.

Trips and Special Signup activities take the place of your "Daily Activities." You will hear fun announcements after meals for these activities. If you want to go, sign up with the counselor that made the announcement and go on that trip or activity. It could be a half-day activity or several days!
