If you are new to Falling Creek and would like more information or to schedule a tour of camp, please call the camp office at 828-692-0262. With long waiting lists certain, we encourage interested families to review our session options and submit an application as soon as possible.
The $1,000 deposit and Father/Son tuition is accepted via eCheck, debit card, or credit card during the application process for each applied session if applying before December 1. Checks also may be sent to camp. (If mailing a Check, your application will not be considered complete until we receive your deposit.)
If applying between December 1 and April 1, the $1,000 deposit and half of the remaining tuition is due with the application.
If applying after April 1, the full tuition is due with the application.
If you are applying for a Father/Son Weekend, the $725 tuition (plus $250 additional son tuition) is also due with this application.
If your camper is eligible to be enrolled, the deposit and Father/Son tuition will be processed upon enrollment. If your application is placed on a wait list, the deposit will not be processed until your camper is enrolled in a session.
The STEEL (CIT) session application begins a competitive selection process. Not all applicants will be offered spaces. A deposit will not be charged until the camper completes the process and is offered a space in STEEL. If he is not selected, a deposit will not be charged. Please see Camper Leadership Programs for information about STEEL.
If we receive your application after we have reached capacity, you will be notified that your son has been placed on our waiting list and the deposit will not be processed until your camper is enrolled in a session.
We anticipate cancellations each year, so we will be able to enroll some boys from our waiting lists. Since waiting list boys receive second priority enrollment the following year, we advise you to submit an application and remain on our waiting list even if chances seem slim.
The $1,000 deposit is fully refundable until January 1, 2020. The deposit becomes non-refundable after January 1, 2020. If written notice of cancellation is received between January 1, 2020 and April 1, 2020, tuition less the $1,000 deposit is refunded. There is no refund after April 1, 2020.
Applications are accepted for a full term only. No refund will be made for late entrance or early withdrawal. As described in the High Expectations of Campers section of the application terms and conditions, no refund will be made in case of dismissal.
For Father/Son Weekend cancellations more than 30-days before your weekend will be assessed a 20% cancellation fee. Father/Son cancellations less than 30-days before your weekend are non-refundable.
We all don’t know how you all do it! Every session, whether it is Main Camp or Father/Son Weekend, we go into it saying, how can the last visit be topped? And each year, you do it!
