“As a former FCC counselor, I can attest to the profoundly positive impact that role played in my life. Not only do you develop life-long relationships with staff and campers, but you learn ever-important soft skills through managing teams and navigating tough situations. It provides the perfect foundation from which any career can be built.”

Jonathan G. / Counselor, 2009 & 2011

Our Expectations

Being a summer camp counselor is one of the most rewarding, challenging and enjoyable jobs you will ever have. If you want to make a difference in the lives of others while having fun and building life skills, there’s no better place to spend your summer than Falling Creek Camp. Each summer our select group of staff members come together for a common purpose — to help our campers become the men that God intends them to be.

Are You A Former Camper?

Take part in the greatest camp tradition: returning to FCC as a staff member to “pass it on!”

We recently introduced the exclusive Challenge Coins shown in this video, given only to counselors who were former campers. They’re a small way to recognize the commitment of former campers, returning to “pass it on” as staff.

I’ve been a camp counselor, an intern in a brokerage firm, and a law clerk. I learned more from being a counselor than anywhere else. Nothing will help you grow up faster than being at a place like Falling Creek. The camp counselor experience can prepare you to be your best.
