One of the hallmarks of Falling Creek is the adventure trip program offered to boys during our two-, three-, and four-week camp sessions.
One of the most important lessons we can teach is to respect the environment.

Under experienced leadership, campers choose from a variety of out-of-camp adventure trips, including Backpacking, Paddling, Rock Climbing, and Mountain Biking. These trips range in skill level from introductory to advanced, and from one-day trips to five-day trips. All our campers begin their Outdoor Adventure experience with a prep - what is a prep and why do we do them? Check out this blog to find out!

Caring for the Environment
A strong element of Falling Creek’s philosophy involves teaching boys to minimize their impact on the wilderness through the principles of Leave No Trace camping. As part of our Green Camp initiative, campers are taught to appreciate the outdoors and to leave the environment exactly as they found it.
