The FCC Code

The Falling Creek Code is a set of enduring traditional values that provides the framework for everything at camp.

I keep coming back to Falling Creek because I see value in Falling Creek’s purpose. Every summer, I see boys that are pushed beyond what they thought they could do and get to see them grow as a result. They come and have a tremendous amount of fun then leave ready to face the next year with newly gained skills and confidence while using the Falling Creek Code as their guide.

Equipp(ED GE)ntlemen

Falling Creek is a game-changer for boys, giving them an edge by offering a supportive, impactful experience that a young man carries with him for a lifetime. It’s an opportunity to make exciting choices, build confidence and character, gain skills, and develop lifelong friendships. Backpacking trips into the mountains, sailing, sleeping under the stars, tennis, basketball, kayaking on the Green River - all help build strong bonds and equip young men with principled character to last a lifetime.

Camp is a place where everyone helps, tries their best, and does the right thing. We ask each camper and staff member to live by the Falling Creek Code every day.

A Window Into Camp

Mountain Climbing & Character

We couldn’t do the things we do at camp without the fine college-aged men on our staff who inspire the next generation of great and Godly men. We look for trustworthiness, maturity, and a strong sense of personal responsibility, because it’s character traits like these that encourage and inspire the boys to do things they never thought possible.
