At Falling Creek, we exist to shepherd the journey of personal growth through love and adventure. We believe that the boys we serve are best able to maximize their potential through productive excitement, community, and communion with the natural world, which we provide with our world-class staff and stunning 890 acre campus. Falling Creek is nestled into a mountaintop cove in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, where boys are unplugged and allowed to be themselves for ten idyllic weeks every summer. In addition to a focus on the personal growth of our campers, we also purposefully cultivate the culture of camp to be a rewarding experience for our staff. We provide competitive pay and professional development, while also intentionally facilitating the physical, mental, spiritual, and social growth of our counselors by nurturing both soft and hard skills.
Falling Creek was founded in 1969 as an independent Christian camp for boys. Over the last 50+ years, we’ve continued to upgrade our facilities and programs while remaining in touch with the traditions that a long-standing summer camp has to offer. Our program thus balances allotting time for reflection in cabin discussions and group gatherings, providing outlets for energy with all-camp games and evening programs, and guiding skill and character development with structured activity lessons. We focus closely on both skill and character development. This programmatic depth allows us to address the holistic education of both our campers and our staff.
