Camp Stories


The boisterous banter of boys has filled a lush arborescent bowl of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Zirconia, North Carolina for the past 54 years. Falling Creek follows an American tradition of camp and leads a group of 300 plus through a boyhood journey that often transpires across multiple summers throughout its 890 acre plot enriched with two spring-fed lakes, 15 miles of trails, and private access to the Green River. The boys are inculcated into a lore and a code that defines their sense of masculinity and brotherhood.


The stories below are an attempt to document the people and culture of Falling Creek Camp through my role as camp photojournalist.
