Honor the Code
When we wear Falling Creek Camp gear, we do so with pride! Wearing these clothes means you "Live By The Code," acting with Servant's Heart, Warrior Spirit, Moral Compass, and Positive Attitude.
CAMP PACKING TIPS
HOW MANY OUTFITS SHOULD I PACK FOR MY CAMPER?
It is important to pack enough clothes for a full week, plus a few extra days. Laundry is done every Friday for all in-camp sessions, except the Junior Camp session. There will be times that campers get wet or dirty and want to change. Please use the packing checklists on our website to help pack for camp accordingly.
DO I NEED A TRUNK?
We suggest using a durable camp trunk (please remove removable wheels). Some campers bring traditional camp trunks, while others may bring the hard plastic style. Duffle bags work for the shorter sessions, too. Trunks/duffle bags are typically kept under the bottom bunk which has 19-1/2” of
clearance, and the campers keep their clothes and belongings in the trunk/duffle bag. The following vendors have been very helpful to our camp families by
providing great service and discounts:
Use code BEHOLD in the camp code box on the home page of Everything Summer Camp’s website.

8% discount when you use the code: FCC2023 (the code only works using the Summer Camp tab)
GREEN AND GOLD SHIRTS
June, Main, and 2-Week Camp campers are assigned, by cabin, to a
green or gold team upon arrival to camp. Team assignments are for
all-camp games and some other in-camp activities.
The packing list for the June, Main, and 2-Week sessions includes (1)
green and (1) gold t-shirt. A reversible Falling Creek green and white (“gold”) shirt is available on our online store. Green and gold t-shirts brought from home are fine. The shirts may have writing on them—they do not have to be plain.
IS LABELING CLOTHING IMPORTANT?
It is important to have all of your son’s clothing and belongings clearly labeled with his full name, not initials - including shoes, sleeping bag, tennis racquet, toothbrush, backpack, trunk, etc.
Sharpie markers work very well, as do name tapes, and name stamps. The vendors below have been very helpful with clothing labels:
Label Lighthouse (Receive a 10% discount on clothing and item labels with promo code Falling Creek)
Sterling Name Tape (Use promo code K1168)
We make a strong effort to return lost and found items while your son is at camp and have greater success if all items are labeled with his full name. With the exception of socks, underwear, water bottles, and towels, Falling Creek will return labeled items to campers once they have left camp. Mailing related costs may be charged to your account.
Unlabeled items will be logged and kept for a short time following
camp, and then donated to local charity if not claimed. Falling Creek is not responsible for lost items.
