In 2013 we are again participating in Pin Trading at Falls Creek!
Last year was a great success and we want to expand on the trading possibilities at camp this year. The Falls Creek staff will be equipped to trade for any Falls Creek or church pin available on campus. We are also encouraging churches to have their own pins made for students, and for those students to use them for trade with Falls Creek staff or students from other churches. A pin trading area will be located near the Missions Village.
Below, we have provided some links to sites that make these custom pins. These are not recommendations, but just information for you to utilize at your discretion. However, we would note that we have used Lapel Pins R Us in the past and received great service. Pins can run anywhere from $1.00-$4.00 each, depending on the design and style.
If you plan to join us in this fun, new activity at camp, here are a few tips:
Choose a design that others will want to trade for…there is typically no artwork charge for the pins (be sure and verify this on the pin company’s website), so work with the company until you get a great design.
Buy enough pins that each student has one for himself and a few to trade.
Direct your students to the pin trading area at Falls Creek once they arrive at camp. Our staff will be around that area every afternoon, Tues.- Fri., 1:00-4:00pm
