One of the hallmarks of Falling Creek is the adventure trip program offered to boys during our two-, three-, and four-week camp sessions. Under experienced leadership, campers can choose from a variety of out-of-camp adventure trips, including Backpacking, Rock Climbing, Mountain Biking, and Paddling. These trips range in skill level from introductory to advanced, and from single day outings to five-day trips. All trips begin and end at Falling Creek Camp, and venture out to enjoy some of the most scenic rocks, rivers, and trails in the Southeast!
In 2020, our Outdoor Adventure Program continued with new Expeditions, leading 108 boys on 14 week-long adventures throughout the Southeast.
In addition to our Backpacking, Climbing, Mountain Biking, Paddling, and Beginner Multi-Sport trips, we also offered a STEEL Leadership Expedition for young men who completed 11th grade. Like the traditional STEEL (Summer Training Encouraging Emerging Leaders) Program, this group of our oldest campers worked on effective communication, risk management, and decision making as they took turns organizing meals and leading different aspects of the journey.
With top-notch instruction by some of Falling Creek’s most skilled veteran staff in our popular adventure activities, these trips offered the experience of a lifetime to campers in grades 6-11. Each experience was designed to include challenging skill building as well as fun. Spending time in nature with a close-knit group of friends made for a memorable, rewarding opportunity. These weeklong expeditions off-property were true to Falling Creek’s core purpose of developing young men of character who can thrive as leaders in their communities.
