Falls Creek 2021
June 13 @ 11:00 am - June 19 @ 5:00 pm
We are excited about going to Falls Creek near Davis, Oklahoma this summer for camp! Falls Creek offers a unique camp setting that is designed to challenge every student in their walk with Christ.
Part of the Falls Creek experience is renting a cabin for our group to stay in. This year we will again be staying the the cabin owned by Velma Baptist Church (Velma, Oklahoma). Each group is responsible for cooking their own meals…so no cafeteria food! We are grateful to have an excellent cook, Doug Cogswell, going with us! There are plenty of recreation activities including (but not limited to):
- water inflatables
- week-long volleyball tournament
- 5k run
- frisbee golf
- ropes courses
There really is something for everyone!
While these things are awesome, the best part of Falls Creek is the way in which students are challenged to pursue God. There are two worship times each day, two church group Bible studies a day, and daily quiet times. This is a place where your teenager will be challenged spiritually. Over the past several years a large number of students have pointed to Falls Creek as a turning point in their spiritual maturity. We have full confidence that the same will be true for teenagers this summer.

FROM FALLS CREEK ADULT GUIDE:
It is strongly suggested that churches limit or prohibit their students’ use and possession of cell phones and two-way radios. These items can quickly become a distraction to the goals of the week of camp.
To honor this, students will have access to their phones only to call home each day. We will publish a list of phone numbers for the adults going so that you can reach your student during the day. Please know that during worship time and Bible Study it may be difficult to reach us right away but we will contact you as soon as those sessions are over.
If you have any questions, please contact Michael Savadge via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
