About the facilities

We will be staying at the Group Site 1 Cabins at Fall Creek Falls State Park in Tennessee. The cabins have screen windows and four to six bunk beds. There are 19 cabins with a maximum occupancy of 100. Two cabins or more if necessary will be reserved for single adults or teenagers who are attending under the sponsorship of another family. There are three bath houses. For those desiring more comfort, the camp is within a reasonable distance of several hotels. The state park also offers Cabins (full comfort, $165-200 a night) and RV camping for which you will need to make your own reservation with the park.

We will be singing in the dining hall. While this will require setup time before and after every meal, with many people helping it will go quickly.

We have a cook who will be doing all the meal planning and preparing the meals. However, volunteers will be needed for each meal and for cleanup.

Those with special dietary needs will need to provide their own meals. There is a refrigerator and freezer in the kitchen to which you can have access. Remember to label your food.

Campers under age 18

Any campers under age 18 whose family is not attending must be sponsored by an adult or family attending camp.

Payment

Please mail payment no later than two weeks before camp. Please write "Sacred Harp Camp" in the memo.
