    What comment are you looking for about a church camp?

    Are you asking because you are going?

    No, I was just seeing if that name brought to mind memories. I have been more times than I can count.

    All kinds of memories, Saggy. I went eight seven times as a teen-ager and young adult., and my daughter went twice.

    When I went back last year, of course, so many things had changed. The B.B. McKinney Chapel was gone, as was the Rounds-Moorer Tabernacle. Falls Creek has purchased the old IOOF camp at Price Falls and has converted the area into softball fields and rock-climbing center. Many of the old pavilions are also gone.

    I heard about Falls Creek pretty much all through my school years, but have never been there.
    (We are Independent Baptist.)

    Can you grow up in Central or Southeastern Oklahoma and not hear about Falls Creek?

    Or anywhere else in OK, I expect.
    Most SBC churches around here, including mine, take large groups to Falls Creek every year.

    My kids have each been more than once. Great place!

    I don't have the statistics right at hand, but I have heard many times that a large percentage of SBC missionaries first responded to God's call at Falls Creek.
    I believe the hymn, "Wherever He leads, I'll go" was written for Falls Creek.
