Where each day is better than the last

Daily Schedule

As soon as the boys wake-up, they start day right with reflection and encouragement during Morning Watch.

Falling Creek is a traditional boys summer camp that offers a balanced program with six structured instructional activities and two free choice periods daily during the weekdays. At any time in our June, Main, and 2-Week Camp sessions, boys can sign up for trips out of camp, ranging from short afternoon trips to 3, 4, or 5 day adventures in the back-country. If boys decide to go on a trip, they simply leave their scheduled activities behind, and plug back into their schedule when they return. This is a bit different in Junior Camp, where boys rotate to activities with their cabin.

Morning Watch

Starting each day at the peaceful Morning Watch chapel has been a tradition at Falling Creek from the beginning. After the wakeup bell and cabin clean up, campers and counselors silently gather in the chapel overlooking the lake. After a few minutes of quiet, hearing only the sounds of nature, a staff member delivers the message for the day. The Morning Watch talk is generally a personal story or quote related to one of the four pillars of the Falling Creek Code.

When he leaves camp reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing Christian songs from memory, I am really impressed with what you are doing for this young man. I am absolutely positive that memories of Falling Creek will be with him his whole life.

Weekend Schedule

During the weekends in our June, Main, and 2-Week Camp sessions, we take a break from our regular schedules to enjoy a more relaxed pace at camp. On Saturdays we play all-camp-games for Green and Gold points, compete in tournaments, and go on one overnight a session as a cabin. Sundays are like a reset button for the week, with more time to reflect at Church and Campfire, more time to clean for cabin inspections (and ice-cream sundaes after!) and more time to try new things with Special-Signups. For details on the schedule during Junior Camp, check out our Junior Camp Program page.
