Falls Creek Youth Camp

Overview

Falls Creek is a place and a thing. When Oklahoma Baptists hear the words, “Falls Creek,” many think of the summer camps held there. That is the “thing” most know as Falls Creek. But Falls Creek is also a place. It is a conference center that is maintained and used year-round for other camps and conferences.

Frequently Asked Questions

BACKGROUND CHECKS

How long are background checks valid?

We will honor adequate background checks for up to 18 months, which, in most cases, will cover two summers of camp. Please note: if a check is found to be incomplete and more than 90 days old, most companies will require you to submit a new check rather than add to your existing background check.

I need to run an international check. Can I do that?

It is possible to complete a background check on international students and adults (even without a social security number). Please contact your provider regarding the cost and time involved in securing the appropriate check.

If a student turns 18 in the middle of camp, do we need to run a background check before camp?

Yes. In the instance that this happens, complete all needed background checks before leaving for camp.

Do I treat yellow flag and red flag offenses for students in the same manner as adults?

Yes. You will need to screen and evaluate your students in the same way you would for adult leaders.
