A Camp for the Nations

Hosting campers who represent over 50 tribal Nations from across North America and over 250 churches each year, Indian Falls Creek is a time of encouragement and training.

Beginning in 1947 with an attendance of 333, the camp’s average registration is now over 3,000. Thirty years prior to the establishment of the camp, J. B. Rounds and W. D. Moorer founded the Falls Creek Assembly itself. It was the Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention that led the work to begin Indian Falls Creek. Organizing the first year’s program were Mrs. John Davis, Mrs. T. W. Stevens, Mrs. Bertha K. Spooner, Mrs. Homer Grimmett, and Aaron Hancock.

The constitution for Indian Falls Creek was drafted by Victor Kaneubbe, Lewis Hancock, and Louise Hendricks. Article II states: 

"The objective of this assembly in its annual meeting shall be to foster and promote Christian training, inspiration, fellowship, evangelism, and missionary zeal among the Indians in their Baptist church life."

A Camp for the Entire Family

Indian Falls Creek Baptist Assembly is widely anticipated each year and has become a tradition for many churches and families. Worship services, classes, and activities are designed to engage people of all ages – preschool to adult. A Health Fair and other ministry organizations also offer opportunities for individuals and churches to build up and expand their learning and ministry.


Generations of families attend IFC together each summer. It is a time to build up your family’s faith as well as gain spiritual grandparents, parents, brothers, and sisters.


Morning classes provide Bible study and discipleship training. Afternoon activities are designed to encourage fellowship and family fun. Gather with everyone for daily morning and evening worship services.



A Camp for Encouraging Faith

For generations, IFC has been a place where people have come to believe in Jesus Christ. Many campers

also receive a calling to reach out and serve in their home communities or into special ministry.


Classes and training times help campers better understand Christ’s work in their lives as well as address the needs and concerns they find around them at home.


Worship, Faith Building, and Fellowship

Come and join us at Indian Falls Creek, a camp for the Nations.
