Live By The Code
We are always looking for staff that exemplify the characteristics of our Code, which include Warrior Spirit, Servants Heart, Moral Compass, and Positive Attitude.
My experiences at Falling Creek significantly enhanced my reliance on faith, brotherhood, training/preparation, leadership, and field craft which are all so vital to succeeding as a Commissioned Officer and a leader of Marines.

Working at Falling Creek is more than just a summer job - you can make a difference in the lives of others, and learn invaluable skills to enhance your resume. Camp is a place where everyone helps, respects, uplifts others, tries their best, and does the right thing.
We ask each camper and staff member to pledge to follow the Falling Creek Camp Code and live it every day.

Do you meet our role requirements for working at camp?
We are looking for talented summer camp counselors who are available from late-May through mid-August. While it is not a requirement, our preference is to hire staff for the entire summer season.
Counselors must be at least 19 years of age, or completed one year of college or comparable life experience away from home.
Our staff members must possess the highest moral character and serve as positive role models while living with and supervising our campers.
Male camp counselors live in a cabin with one other counselor and eight campers. In addition to their activity instruction, male counselors will have an assortment of responsibilities related to the management of their cabin. Female camp counselors also serve as activity staff, but don’t live in cabins with the campers, and are responsible instead for organizational tasks during the times that male staff are busy with their cabins.
Going 100% every day is important. Campers are inspired by your energy and enthusiasm, so counselors must have a high energy level every day. If you’re having fun, the campers are having fun.
Working at Falling Creek is a 24/7 job. You have to be able to handle anything - at 3PM or 3AM. The day never ends, but you can’t really beat the type of day you will have!
The people I’ve met at Falling Creek are among of the most genuine, caring, and hard-working I’ve ever known, and the friendships that develop there are truly something special. I’ve found so much guidance and growth through the people that I’ve come to know at FCC, and their influence will undoubtedly be with me for the rest of my life.

Don’t just take our word for it!
We know that working at camp is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have, but what do staff members think? Hear about the staff experience from the perspective of other counselors. You can read Riley’s story here, or Reid’s story here.

FCC and its people had more to do with shaping me for whatever role I fill (father, husband, lawyer, coach) than any other place.
